NEW YORK (AP) — Another Rolling Stones rumor bites the dust.

Hours before Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood took the stage with former band member Mick Taylor at a club in Manhattan on Saturday night, a crowd gathered outside amid speculation that they would be joined by fellow guitarist Keith Richards and, possibly, Mick Jagger.

Inside the Cutting Room was a mix of celebs — musician and actor Steven Van Zandt, Monkees member Micky Dolenz, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, among others.

But the standing-room-only crowd of a few hundred got what was originally promised: A 90-minute set of guitar-grinding Jimmy Reed blues songs from Wood and Taylor.

The duo played a few shows at the club earlier in the week, too, tearing into the likes of "Bright Lights Big City" and "Going to New York."
