I think when you get asked to play with the Stones, you play however they ask you to play. I got to hang out with Byron quite a bit at the VSA Convention in Kentucky. i even got to Sing "Ghost Riders" with him in the lobby. He came to my room to look at pegs and told me the story of how he got invited to the "inner sanctum" back stage at a Stones concert and the strange upscale world that followed the Band when they travelled.
Not only did the Stones want that sawing, semi Cajun, style bowing but they moved the recording session outside on the pavement, That's why you hear the car horns which were left in purposefully. Byron was recommended to the Stones by Graham Parsons. It's funny that the Original Honky Tonk Women is set in Memphis and the "Country Honk" takes place in Jackson. There's a Jackson in both Mississippi, and Louisiana. The former starts with a Memphis blues style electric guitar and The later a sawing style bar room fiddle. It is a lot more effective the way it sits.
I like it, and so did the public, and more importantly, the Stones who hired him.
I liked Byron, and always enjoyed his company. RIP.
