Biography

For over three decades, Bill Wyman was the largely silent but stalwart bassist for the Rolling Stones, the self-described greatest band in the world and one of the most influential groups in rock and roll history. With drummer Charlie Watts, he laid down the blues- and soul-influenced rhythm for all of their enduring hits between 1963 and 1990, and established himself as one of the foremost bass players in the business. However, Wyman was also a frustrated composer and band leader in his own right, and after decades of playing in the background with the Stones, he left the group in 1990 to pursue a variety of careers, including frontman for his own band, the Rhythm Kings, as well as author, photographer and amateur archaeologist. His legacy, however, remained as a member of the Rolling Stones, whose popularity remained largely untouched after four tumultuous decades.

Milestones

Popular songs include "Je Suis Un Rock Star".
