Bill Wyman: Dirty Work Behind The Scenes

Chris Welch, Creem, August 1986

"WE SPENT FIVE months in Paris making the Stones' new album, and it doesn't usually take that long. We messed around for weeks because Mick was still buggering around with his solo album instead of working with us. He would fly back to London in the middle of it, which I might add is a thing that nobody else has ever done, because when it's been Stones work, everybody drops solo projects. It kinda caused a bit of resentment among the band."
