After nearly 30 years of churning out some of rock 'n' roll's greatest hits with the Rolling Stones, bassist Bill Wyman decided to leave the band he once loved, telling Star Tribune, he needed "to start life over — a normal life." Wyman had grown tired of the Stones' demands to stay afloat in the genre they'd helped define in the '60s and pushed to new heights in the '70s. "Playing with the Stones, there was always such a lot of pressure," Wyman told the Telegraph in 2008, via Ultimate Classic Rock. "The next album or single always had to be the best, or at least sell more. When we got together to play, it was a great moment. Working with Charlie [Watts] was fantastic, and we're still really close. But when I toured with the Stones, it would take a month to practice all these songs we'd been playing for 30 years."
