Bill Wyman on Rolling Stones Reunion: Never Again
Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has no anger towards his old band mates, but says “never again” will he be part of a reunion.
Fans hoping that Bill Wyman would be a part of the Rolling Stones shows in the U.S. are going to be disappointed at this news. Bill said to the UK version of the Huffington Post that he has “no animosity” to the other members of the Rolling Stones, but he will never again be a part of a reunion with them.
He explains that it’s because he’s not a fan of reunions in the first place because, “you can’t go back to things, and they can never be the same.” He explains that when “you try to go back and have a relationship with someone, it doesn’t work, and it’s the same musically.”
That being said, he felt it was worth a try. He was very involved in the reunion shows last year, but he was “disappointed” when he was only a part of a couple songs, so he just decided that the O2 shows in London were just going to be a “one off”. He says they’re all still friends, but he won’t be doing any more shows with the group.
The closest the Rolling Stones will come on this tour is Chicago for three dates May 31, June 1 and June 3.
