From January 1971, he also had a daughter, Chloe, to support from a short-lived marriage to his first wife, Rosie.His first public appearance with the band was the Stones’ huge free concert in Hyde Park, which became an impromptu memorial for the band’s founder and original guitarist Brian Jones, who had been found dead two days earlier.
‘Part of the charm of the Rolling Stones, as far as I could see, was that they were not technically very good but were very raw and had great ideas.’Taylor was always set apart from the rest of the band, who had already been together for seven years by the time he joined.
