The [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] joined forces with their original bassist, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bill Wyman[/lastfm], for a cover of the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] tune, Watching The River Flow. It will be included as one of the songs on the new CD Boogie 4 Stu, a tribute to the Stones‘ original keyboardist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ian Stewart[/lastfm]. The CD will be released next week.
[photogallerylink id=5040 align=left]Watching The River Flow is the only track on the CD that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] appears on, and he and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Keith Richards[/lastfm] are reported to have recorded their contributions in separate studios.
The song also marks the first time since Wyman left the band in 1992 that he has recorded as part of the band.
Stewart joined the Stones in 1962 shortly before Jagger and Richards, but was quickly booted from the band because manager Andrew Loog Oldham felt that he didn’t fit the band’s image. Stewart was demoted to the Stones‘ road manager, but continued to occasionally perform and record with them up until his death in 1985.
