Biography

Richard "Dick" Clifford Taylor (born 28 January 1943) is an English musician, best known as the guitarist and founding member of The Pretty Things.

Taylor was an early bassist for the Rolling Stones, but left the band to become an art student at Sidcup Art College. Whilst there he formed The Pretty Things in September 1963. He now lives on the Isle of Wight, England.

Taylor was born in Livingstone Hospital, Dartford, Kent, England and he attended Dartford Grammar School. In July 1962, while he was at Sidcup Art College, the Rolling Stones was formed when Taylor, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards' three piece, Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys joined Brian Jones and Ian Stewart's Rollin' Stones. Initially, Taylor played lead guitar in the band, but found himself pushed into bassist position to accommodate Jones, who quickly went on to become an accomplished slide guitarist. In November 1962, Taylor left to return to art college, and the band-mates posted an advertisement seeking another bassist. Bill Wyman responded, and succeeded him as The Rolling Stones' bassist in December 1962.
