Stones' Micks reunited in the park

The Rolling Stones will be reunited with Mick Taylor on stage

The Rolling Stones' return to Hyde Park will see them team up with former guitarist Mick Taylor, but there will be no reappearance of the white dress Mick Jagger wore at the original 1969 gig because he has lost it.

The band will be back in the park almost 44 years to the day since they played to thousands of fans just days after the death of founding member Brian Jones.

Jagger told Q Magazine he was looking forward to being joined on stage by Taylor, who made his debut at the first Hyde Park gig before he left in the 1970s to be replaced by Ronnie Wood.

He said: "I thought about this yesterday, how strange it will be to turn around on stage at Hyde Park and see Mick Taylor there again. But it's nice. He's playing very well."

The band's 1969 set was kicked off by Jagger, in his famous dress, reciting a Shelley poem in honour of Jones before thousands of butterflies were released on stage.

He said: "I lost that dress. It vanished years ago.

"I bought two for Hyde Park - a white one and an orange one. The orange one's in the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I think."

The important thing is to be discerning about the company you keep. Surround yourself with caring, attentive people who support you in good times and bad.More
