Mick Taylor : Mick’s career spans five decades and takes in some of the most important names in rock ’n’ roll history. …Following Brian Jones’ departure, Mick came to the attention of the Rolling Stones as a session musician on the Let It Bleed album, although he soon became a permanent replacement and stayed with the Stones for half a decade.
@ allmusic.com : There’s no denying the great string of classic albums the Rolling Stones issued during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s — 1969’s Let It Bleed, 1970’s Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out, 1971’s Sticky Fingers, and 1972’s Exile on Main St. But while Jagger and Richards received the lion’s share of credit for these aforementioned albums, it was the guitar work, and uncredited songwriting contributions, of Mick Taylor that helped make these albums so special.
