Lovingly known as the sixth stone, pianist Ian Stewart was in fact a founding person in the initial group, pre-dating both Charlie W and Costs Wyman simply because members. Stewart, or Stu as he was known as, was among a core band of tempo and blues aficionados that frequented Alexis Korner’s blues membership. Among others had been Charlie W, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Dick Taylor and Keith Richards, statistics who all continue to truly have a deep effect on rock and roll n’ move music. Adept at boogie woogie design piano, Stewart started rehearsing with fellow aficionados Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. When bassist Costs Wyman and drummer Charlie W joined up with, the group called themselves the Rolling Rocks and began getting a little but loyal pursuing in London. After supervisor Andrew Loog Oldham overran the reigns from the Rocks’ profession he considered Stewart unfit for the group as the straight-laced Stewart didn’t “possess the right appear.” Fortunately for all of those other band Stu decided to stick to as their street supervisor and sometime piano participant. Throughout the groupings career Stu added his Chicago design piano playing to many from the Rocks produces including December’s Kids, Aftermath and Allow it Bleed amongst others. The gifted keyboardist also lent his hands to projects beyond your Rocks like the London Howlin’ Wolf periods, Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti and Pete Townshend’s Tough Mix record. Adored by all who understood him, Stewart’s uncompromisingly purist position to the blues (he refused to try out piano on “Crazy Horses” because minimal chords offended him visually) helped keep carefully the Rocks on the stayed course through the instances when these were in true danger of shedding their core audio. Ian Stewart passed away in 1985 before he might have an opportunity to end up being inducted in to the rock and roll n’ move hall of popularity beside his beloved Rolling Rocks.
