Another round of special guests sat in with The Rolling Stones last night at San Jose, CA’s HP Pavilion. A few songs into the evening, surprise guest John Fogerty emerged for the Stones’ classic cover of The Valentinos’ “It’s All Over Now.” A bit later, Bonnie Raitt took the stage to sing with the classic rock band on their first version of “Let it Bleed” since August 21, 2007. As he has at every full-show since their reunion this past fall, former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor rejoined his old group for “Midnight Rambler” while the San Jose State University Choraliers sang on “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” At the end of the night, Taylor returned for his first take on “Satisfaction” in 40 years.

The night also featured some bust outs. With the exception of a warm-up show in France in November, the Stones performed their first take on the fan-requested Beggar’s Banquet number “No Expectations” since June 25, 2007. They also dusted off the Sticky Fingers track “Bitch” for the first time since August 11, 2007.

The Rolling Stones will perform at Las Vegas, NV’s MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday.

I’d rather see 2 or 3 songs w/ Mick Taylor…special guests are fun and cool but one song for ex-stone Mick Taylor? What’s up with that?

Mutter, They played two songs with Mick Taylor. Read the setlist

I’d love to see Mick Taylor play all of the songs he recorded (10 or 11?) I think his first record was Let It Bleed? What would be the harm in that? Ronnie would have more time to get drunk at the backstage bar.

The Stones have been such a great part of our lives that we all think we should have a say in how they play, who, what & when. I love The Stones. Cheers.
