The Rolling Stones paid tribute to soul singer Bobby Womack, who died on Friday, at their show Saturday in Belgium by performing "It's All Over Now," which they recorded on their 1964 album, 12x5.

In a statement on their website the band says, "Bobby Womack was a huge influence on us. He was a true pioneer of soul and R&B, whose voice and songwriting touched millions. On stage, his presence was formidable. His talents put him up there with the greats. We will remember him, first and foremost, as a friend." Womack provided background vocals on the Stones' 1986 cover of "Harlem Shuffle."

Guitarist Ronnie Wood, who had Womack join him on his second album, Now Look, and who inducted Womack into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009, says, "I'm so sad to hear about my friend Bobby Womack -- the man who could make you cry when he sang has brought tears to my eyes with his passing. My heart goes out to his family and friends and everyone who loved his music. Bobby you will be greatly missed."
