Mick Taylor Career
He began playing guitar at age nine, learning to play from his mother’s younger brother. As a teenager, he formed bands with schoolmates and started performing concerts under names such as The Juniors and the Strangers. They also appeared on television and put out a single. Part of the band was recruited for a new group called The Gods, which included Ken Hensley (later of Uriah Heep fame).
In 1966, The Gods opened for Cream at the Starlite Ballroom in Wembley. Taylor himself has said after seeing that Clapton hadn’t appeared, but that his guitar had already been set up on the stage, he approached John Mayall during the interval to ask if he could play with them. Taylor mentioned that he was familiar with the band’s repertoire, and after a moment of deliberation, Mayall agreed. Taylor amended, “I wasn’t thinking that this was a great opportunity … I just really wanted to get up on stage and play the guitar.”
After playing the second set, and garnering Mayall’s respect in the process, Taylor left the stage, joined his friends, and exited the venue before Mayall had the chance to speak with him. Still, this encounter proved to be pivotal in Taylor’s career when Mayall needed someone to fill Peter Green’s vacancy the following year when Green quit forming Fleetwood Mac. Mayall placed a ‘Guitarist Wanted’ advert in the weekly Melody Maker music paper, and much to his relief immediately got a response from Taylor, whom he readily invited to join.
Taylor made his debut with the Bluesbreakers at the Manor House, an old blues club in north London. For those in the music scene, the night was an event …”Let’s go and see this 17-year-old kid try and replace Eric”. Taylor toured and recorded the album Crusade with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. From 1966 to 1969, Taylor developed a guitar style that is blues-based with Latin and jazz influences.
He is the guitarist on the Bluesbreaker albums Diary of a Band, Bare Wires, and Blues from Laurel Canyon. Later on in his career, he further developed his skills as a slide guitarist. In November 1973, Taylor underwent surgery for acute sinusitis and missed some of the sessions when the band began working on the LP It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll at Musicland Studios in Munich. Not much was achieved during the first ten days at Musicland, but most of the actual recordings were made there in January 1974, and in April at Stargroves, Jagger’s estate in Hampshire. When Taylor resumed work with the band, he found it difficult to get along with Richards.
