Ex Stone May Sue Over Royalties

Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones less than a week after Brian Jones departed in 1969.  He left the group at the end of 1974. Royalty payments from albums he played on apparently stopped after the group switched labels in in 1982.  Taylor claims to have no regrets about leaving the Stones, saying drugs would probably have killed him had he stayed.  He does regret not having money he expects he is entitled to, telling the Daily Mail his days of trying to reason with the band directly are over.  "They all know it's not right", says the guitarist, "...but I realize that hiring a lawyer is probably the only way they'll take me seriously." Taylor played on 6 albums, including Exile On Main Street, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and It's Only Rock n Roll.
