Bill Wyman at Home in the South of France, 1971

About the image
When the Stones moved to France as tax exiles in 1971, each member lived in their own home, spread out over a fairly large area of France. They would meet at Keith Richard's house - the now legendary Nellcôte- where their mobile sound unit was parked to work on their album Exile on Main St, but then each could retreat back to relative "normalcy" in their own spaces during breaks in recording.

“We were living all over the place. Keith went to Cap Ferrat, up the coast towards Monte Carlo. Mick was in Biot, which is near Antibes. Charlie had a farm in Arles, while I was in a rented house, the Bastide St Antoine, which was near Grasse, where they make the perfume, a few miles away from Pablo Picasso’s house in Mougins. Mick Taylor was up north behind me. So we were quite spread out, but we liked that. Well, I did." - Bill Wyman
