It Was 40 Years Ago Today: Stones Unveil New Lineup at Hyde Park

The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, 1969: (L to R) Charlie Watts, Mick Taylor, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Bill Wyman.

Two days after Brian Jones’s death, The Rolling Stones (and Marianne Faithful) paid tribute to him with a free concert on Saturday, July 5, 1969, at Hyde Park in London.

Mick Taylor, the pre-determined replacement for Jones, played for the first time with new bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman in front of 250,ooo at Hyde Park.

The set list included earlier Rolling Stones singles (“Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Satisfaction” and “I’m Free”) along with new numbers which featured Taylor’s guitar work more prominently (“Honky Tonk Women,” “Love In Vain” and “Midnight Rambler.”)
