noneverstuck Posted April 10, 2004 Share Posted April 10, 2004 I'm coming out of lurker mode to research some trivia. Many years ago there was a band called The Rolling Stones. In this band was a bassist who stood stock still while his bandmates pranced about in rock 'n roll glee. A hurricane wouldn't tip him. Or so it is told. His name was Bill Wyman. A friend of mine said that at last during one show Bill Wyman was inspired to step forward a few feet. The crowd erupted in a standing ovation. My question: Did this happen? When? Where? What song? Why did he move? I've searched the net, expecting to find it on some Stones lore page, but I've come up empty. Why do I care? I was working on some lyrics and my friend's words "Bill Wyman moved five feet" popped into my head. It seems funny and symbolic in the context of the tune, but I'd like to know the details of said event before I commit to it. If it's just a myth, that's fine too, as long as it's a well-known myth. Thanks. Deef Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
