Stones Record Tribute To Stewart

A tribute album to the late Rolling Stones keyboard player Ian Stewart has brought former Stone Bill Wyman together in a virtual way with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts.  The bass player rejoined his band mates in a long distance collaboration on a version of the Bob Dylan song Watching The River Flow that will be included on Boogie 4 Stu.  Tracks that Wood and drummer Charlie Watts laid down in the studio were forwarded to Keith Richards in New York, who then sent them on to Jagger, who added vocals and harmonica in France before handing things off to Wyman, who left the band nearly 20 years ago.  Keys player Stewart, who was a semi-official member of the band, died in 1985 of a heart attack while in the waiting room of his physician.  Boogie for Stu is out April 19 on Eagle Rock.
