Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood and the man he replaced in the band, Mick Taylor, appear to have formed a new supergroup after hitting the stage together for an exclusive gig in New York on Thursday (07Nov13).
Taylor joined Wood and his band onstage at the BluesFest in London at the beginning of the month (Nov13) after becoming fast friends with his Stones successor on their 50 and Counting Tour, during which the group's former guitarist joined his ex-bandmates for parts of their show.
And it seems the get together has become so much more - Wood and Taylor joined veteran musicians Al Kooper and Simon Kirke at New York's Cutting Room for one of the Big Apple's hottest tickets this week.

The Rolling Stones returned to the spot of perhaps their most historic gig on Saturday; Hyde Park.
It sounds frankly ridiculous to suggest the Rolling Stones should be taken seriously, though thanks to the ageism levelled at the band in recent months you would have been forgiven for assuming Mick Jagger was going to be wheeled on-stage at Glastonbury burning £20 notes and playing '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' over, and over, and over, and over.
Of course, Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts made a mockery of the sceptics and delivered one of the most explosive and entertaining Glastonbury sets in years. The Sunday papers were awash with five-star reviews, greatest hits albums flew off the shelves, everyone LOVED the Stones again - but Hyde Park was still to come.
Delighting 65,000 fans in London on Saturday (July 6), The Stones just about managed to clutch onto their tag as the world's greatest rock n' roll band with an unstoppable setlist that included 'Paint It Black,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Sympathy for the Devil,' 'Midnight Rambler' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want.'
