“The Worst” is a song by The Rolling Stones from their 1994 album “Voodoo Lounge”. The album was recorded in Dublin, Ireland. Said Keith Richards, who sings this song, in 1994: “It’s funny, but a lot of these songs were written in kitchens. That one I wrote in the kitchen in Barbados, and I thought, That’s a pretty melody, but what to do with it, I really didn’t know. I guess that’s where Ireland comes in, because Ireland has its own traditional music, and it’s not country music as such, but it’s the roots of it, you know? It’s that Irish feel.”

This features Chuck Leavell on piano and Frankie Gavin on violin. Fiddle player and flute player Frankie Gavin is a member of the well-known traditional Irish folk music group De Dannan. While recording in Dublin in 1993 for Voodoo Lounge, The Stones got him to contribute on “The Worst and New Faces.” Gavin also later worked on Keith’s Wingless Angels project. In November 2002, Gavin guested onstage with The Stones at their Oakland concert, performing on “Sweet Virginia.” (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France, for all above)
