Sorry if you find this "old news", Keno. I never claimed it was "new" news, just that I read it recently. I'm sure you know things I don't & vice versa. Since some of his guitar parts WERE removed, guess it is entirely true. How sad. Since Brian was instrumental in creating the tune, they still should have given him credit for it. To delete his parts and have Mick T. redo them amounts to plagiarism in my books. I think deleting his parts, then having the nerve to release with Mick T. so soon after he died is disrespectful, to say the least. It would have been so much more appropriate to leave Brian's guitar in, then release it after his death in memorium to him. I'm not so sure about Keith not being meanspirited, when you consider him & Mick were dismissing alot of Brian's ideas, and if you read the interview he gave after Brian's death in "The First 20 Years"; it's hardly sensitive. Keith also overdubbed Ronnie parts on It's Only Rock N Roll. Granted Woody was not in the band yet, but he still could have given credit where credit is due. Mick & Keith routinely take credit. Look at Mick T.; he didn't get enough credit. They rarely gave Ian Stewart credit for all he did. On Exile, they list "Amyl Nitrate" on percussion; why not say who it was?
