(Si Si) Je Suis Un Rock Star – The Best Of Bill Wyman and Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings

With all the tracks chosen by Bill Wyman himself, these two CDs present the perfect introduction to his recordings.

CD 1 contains songs from Bill's solo albums, kicking off with '(Si Si) Je Suis Un Rock Star', his big hit from 1981, as well as the follow-up hits.

CD 2 features songs from Bill's Rhythm Kings, the ten-piece band with revolving guest stars that he put together in the 90s after leaving the Rolling Stones, as well as tracks from Willie And The Poor Boys, Bill's 1985 all-star side-project.

The guest stars include Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, Georgie Fame, Peter Frampton, Chris Rea, Gary Brooker, Andy Fairweather Low, Charlie Watts, Dr John, Joe Walsh, Van Morrison and many more. The booklet lists who plays what on every track, along with annotation by Tony Rounce.

    1. Loved a lot of your music. Stay cool and good wishes.

    2. In October 1965 me and my grade 8 class invited you guys to a party after your concert at Maple Leaf Gardens (I saw a policeman get his hat kicked right off his head in the stands below us). We sent a telegram to your hotel, they must have delivered it. I had a new copy of Out of Our Heads and a new needle ready to go. What happened?

    3. Bill, it’s October 24th today, happy birthday, it is mine as well! Thank you for the songs I grew up with during my 53 years. Keep on rockin’.

    4. Bill was and is an integral part of the stones. Not just a bassist, a multi
      talented instrumentalist. He played keyboards, vibes, harpsichord
      as well as other instruments. Even though the songwriing credits always said Jagger/Richards, Bill, Brian and Mick Taylor contributed
      mightily in that department. Daryl Jones is a world class bassist, yet the feel isn’t the same as having an original member hold the sound together. I wish Bill never left!
