(The first song I worked on with the Stones) was called Live with Me, very appropriately named because once I joined the Stones, it was like living with a family for the next 5 or 6 years. It was an interesting session, actually, because they were putting the finishing touches on Let It Bleed and the first track I played on was Live with Me. We did that live, and the second thing I did was I overdubbed my guitar part on Honky Tonk Women.
Both the horns AND Mick Taylor made their debut on the same album on the same track. At the time a lot of people overlooked the fact that it wasn't just Mick (Taylor) joining the band, that was the whole period where the horns joined too. And they all left at the same time.
