Bill Wyman - first album adBill Wyman - Monkey Grip

The author of 'The Lantern' [1967], has been the most active member of the Rolling Stones outside the Rolling Stones, until he left the band in 1990 to pursue other goals and solo projects.

As a producer first [notably for 'The End' in 1968, and 'Tucky Buzzard' in the early 1970s] and as a solo artist [his debut album 'Monkey Grip' was released in 1974], Bill Wyman have been collaborating with many famous names and instigated various musical projects.

A fairly number of singles combinations were extracted worldwide from his first two albums on Rolling Stones Records [the second being 'Stone Alone' in March 1976] but his best commercial success was 'Si, Si, Je Suis Un Rock Star', taken from his third solo effort simply titled 'Bill Wyman' on Ripple Records / A&M, which topped at #14 in the UK charts in July 1981.

In the early 80's, Wyman also composed the soundtracks for the movie 'Green Ice' [1981], as well as the film 'Digital Dreams' [1983], both projects being popular among collectors.

In 1984, he formed Willie and the Poor Boys, a group of well known musicians to record an album to help the Ronnie Lane Appeal for A.R.M.S.

Wyman took a musical break after his departure from the The Rolling Stones in the early 90's.

"When I again became inspired by musical thoughts in late 1995" he says "I did so without any very serious intentions. I just fancied playing a bit of music, but I knew I wanted to do things differently this time. I wasn't interested in playing 'commercial' music, so I decided to try to get back into early traditional roots."

Two years later was released 'Struttin' Our Stuff', the first album by Wyman's new band the Rhythm Kings. The band played little clubs all around Europe and never stopped since. Occasional promo CDSingles would see the light of the day to support the band's albums.

The original Rhythm Kings' line up involved Gary Brooker, Georgie Fame, Albert Lee, Martin Taylor, Beverley Skeete, Graham Broad, and Wyman himself of course, but many other artists frequently joined on stage or in the studio [among them Mark Knopfler, George Harrison, Albert Lee, Martin Taylor, Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton and Chris Rea].
As Wyman states himself about his band: "it's a bit like a football team, the musicians and singers come and go so the line up changes slightly, but the musicianship is always second to none and the core players remain".
