Darryl Jones

Darryl Jones, a Chicago native, joined Miles Davis’ legendary group in 1983, contributing to the recordings of iconic albums such as “Decoy” and “You’re Under Arrest.”

In subsequent years, he collaborated with a number of prominent artists, including Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, Mike Stern, John Scofield, Steps Ahead, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Cher, Eric Clapton, Sting, and Joan Armatrading.

Since 1992, Jones has been the Rolling Stones’ bassist, joining the group after Bill Wyman left. Although he is recognized as a collaborator rather than an official member, he has contributed significantly to the band’s sound.

Jones plays a Lakland bass specially designed for him, giving his sound a unique and recognizable touch.
