"The sunshine bores the daylights out of me..."
He just owned everything when he played: the stage, the song, the recording, and the sound. You kids out there who received the world of music through ear buds, you have to make sure you get in the same room with real instruments from time to time. A tenor sax just blows spit and air in every direction. When a rock and roll tenor man of Keyes' power starts to play, run for cover!
I feel like I lost a family member or something. He was such a part of the Stones for so long. He got fired one time. It took a while for Keith to get him back in the band. It's quite a story. I think it was in Keith's bio.
RIP Bobby Keyes
Yes, it was in Keith's book. IIRC, Keith actually snuck him back in behind Mick's back.
So very sad. Rest In Peace, Mr. Keys...
Rip bobby thanks for the music
I didn't know about that.
It was in his own book, too.
I always loved his playing. He actually played with Buddy Holly. I'm sure he had some stories. RIP Bobby.
I can't believe it : it seemed to me like he was (and would stay) around forever.
... RIP Mr Bobby Keys, thanks for the good music
RIP Bobby Keys, I'm going to play Brown Suger all day in honour of you.
After that I might might even throw a TV out of a window for good measure!
I didn't know Bobby was a RC plane & aviation buff.
Nice tribute from Jim T Graham from RCGroups & Flying Giants.
I cracked up the first time I read how he got kicked out of the band, in that tub full of Dom Perignon, saying "fuggid". And then Keith sneaks him back in, what 15 years later? Oh, Bobby, a life you enjoyed!
Don't forget, Bobby played with John Lennon and Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen. That's Bobby playing the sax solo on Lennon's "Whatever Gets you Through the Night". Not only did he play with the Stones, he played with Rock's 'royalty', so to speak. The big man from Texas made an indelible mark on Rock n Roll.
great, great player. his sax really propelled this song from John:
You could play a whole setlist:
Live with Me
Can't You Hear Me Knocking
I Got the Blues
Rip This Joint
Shake Your Hips
Turd on the Run
Let It Loose
All Down the Line
Coming Down Again
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo
Hide Your Love
Let Me Go
She's So Cold
All About You
His autobiography is one of the best I've ever read.

Awwww man, that's a big drag. I saw Bobby play at the Exit Inn in Nashville once in the early 90s and bought him drinks until he let me sing some Little Richard songs with him. I always admired his really raspy, honking low notes. They sound so dirty.
Nice story soul-o. That must've been fun...
I saw an interview with Bobby, he was talking about the notorious "exile" sessions in France. He described the experience as " just like ****...g in tall cotton" for a poor southern boy. Well Bobby that's exactly what your doing in Rock &Roll Heaven. BOBBY KEYS RIP
