No, it really doesn’t matter, especially four or five years down the line.

Personally, I am willing to think that Mick reached out to Campbell on his own initiative without Stevie specifically prompting either of them. But I think that the reason Mick did reach out to Campbell was specifically to warm the cockles of Stevie’s heart. Mick knew he had a bad situation (with “psychic jiu-jitsu”) with his superstar draw, so he did it to please her — whether or not she requested it. He probably figured, what better way to fill her with the positive spirit for a drastic lineup change than to bring in an old pal who liked her. Whether or not Mick knew Campbell is irrelevant; he knew that Stevie knew Campbell, and so this was his idea to support Stevie first and foremost, not to launch the band in some lovely new direction.
