Dick Taylor, mainly known as lead guitarist with The Pretty Things, co-founded Little Boy Blue and The Blue Boys, who evolved into The Rollin’ Stones / The Rolling Stones. Dick (then on bass) and some friends had jammed for fun for a few years when they were joined by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger – forming Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. They later met with Brian Jones and Geoff Bradford through Alexis Korner. Members came and went (e.g. Brian Knight, Paul Jones), with Dick Taylor deciding to continue his studies at Sidcup Art School. Mick, Keith and Brian then recruited Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman. You know the rest. Dick met Phil May at Sidcup Art School and together they formed The Pretty Things, who had even longer hair and boasted an even uglier image.
Dick Taylor is a most accessible and a most accomplished guitar player who is still active.
He granted Radio 68 an exclusive interview in Brussels on 15 Jan. 2017.
His early mates never played a major role in the music business and are now, regretfully, forgotten altogether (viz. Bob Beckwith, rhythm guitar and Allen Etherington, percussion). Home recordings (made at Dick Taylor’s home using reel-to-reel–tape) of the earliest line-ups with Beckwith and Etherington have been released by “Juke Box Magazine” in France

“Following on from 2016’s well-received TurpentineThe Panoramic View is British singer/guitarist/songwriter Mark Harrison’s sixth album and probably his best yet. In a collection of 15 original songs, played on a variety of acoustic instruments, recorded with crystalline clarity by Tim Bazell of Heart of Gold Studios in London, Harrison cheerfully mixes folk, blues and gospel to create an album that is uplifting, thought-provoking, entertaining and distinctly different.
In addition to singing in his unaffected yet curiously affecting voice, Harrison fingerpicks National and 12-string guitars masterfully in a Piedmont style, adroitly picking up a slide on “Ain’t No Justice”. Each song has a different line-up of musicians, from the solo ragtime instrumental “Pool Meadow Strut” (which is not, apparently, named after some rural paradise but the main bus station in the English city of Coventry) to a full band line-up. Harrison’s regular band of  Charles Benfield (double bass) and Ben Welburn (drums and percussion) are joined at different time by Paddy Milner (piano), Ed Hopwood (harmonica) and Paul Tkachenko (trombone, trumpet, mandolin and even tuba on “Mess Is Everywhere”) […] .
