In retrospect, I can see it wouldn't have worked (Jagger would have been living in a state of perpetual professional jealousy) but I still wish I could have heard Marriott with the Stones at least once.
I never heard about Marriot being considered as a replacement for Taylor. That would have changed the Stones, and that's probably why it didn't happen. He and Frampton fought a kind of Lennon/McCartney battle for the direction of Humble Pie, and while I loved that band, it made them sort of schizophrenic.
