Is it Page on Stones One hit to the body track?

Recommended Posts

I understand Jimmy jammed with some of the Stones circa 1982 but did he play solo on the actual recorded Track "One hit to the body"?

Yes, he did contribute to the recording of that track and can be heard on it.

"Saint Of Me" only wishes it was half the song "One Hit To The Body" is :lol: It'd be a standout on a Jagger solo album but sticks out like a sore thumb on a Stones album (even one as "eclectic" as Bridges To Babylon) since a) Keith doesn't play on it and b ) Charlie's drums are a drum loop. You've got Waddy Wachtel doing his best Keith Richards imitation and an auto-pilot solo from Ronnie Wood. Best thing about "Saint Of Me" is Billy Preston playing on a Stones album for the first time in twenty years.

"One Hit To The Body" is a classic...one of the Stones' great opening tracks. Dirty Work is nowhere near as bad as its detractors make it out to be. And Page's solo is a killer- as far as I'm concerned Page's solo is the best thing he's done since Zeppelin outside of the 2007 reunion concert.

I knew I liked that track for some reason. Rest of the LP is shite. I honestly don't dig anything the Stones have done since Mick Taylor left. Saw them in 89 or 90 (Steel Wheels tour). Awful

Sorry, No. I really lost interest after Some Girls, thought that was their last consistent effort.

"Saint of Me" always sounded to me like a guitar track was missing.

In the spirit of "Ruby Tuesday" and other Stones ballads, I thought this one was a winner from their later catalog.  Great lyrics and mix.
