More Info:

American saxophonist Bobby Keys (1943-2014) was born in Slaton, Lubbock County, Texas. Not knowing how to read music, he learned to play the saxophone on his own. At the age of fourteen, he met Buddy Holly, also from Lubbock, and saxophonist King Curtis. During his teenage years, he accompanied singer Bobby Vee on the Caravan of Stars tour, organized by television host, Dick Clark. In 1964, he discovered the Rolling Stones during a concert in San Antonio. With trumpeter Jim Price, he was one of the musicians recruited for their 1969 tour. He took part in the recording of several Stones albums, including Let It Bleed in 1969, Sticky Fingers in 1971 and Exile on Main Street in 1972. The famous saxophone chorus on the track, Brown Sugar, is considered his most significant contribution. Born the same day as Keith Richards, he became one of his close friends. While most of his career was centred around the Rolling Stones, Keys also played for many artists, including The Who, B. B. King, John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Johnny Hallyday and Barbara Streisand. He participated in the recording of the albums, Mad Dogs and Englishmen by Joe Cocker, All Things Must Pass by George Harrison, and Cosmic Wheels by Donovan. In 1972, Warner Bros. Published his only solo album. The record brought together two ex-Beatles, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, and friends of the musician, including Jack Bruce, trumpeter Jim Price and pianist Nicky Hopkins. In the early 1980s, Bobby, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richard under the production of Clive Hunt, took years to record this 'lost' album. This record of rare artistic quality has remained buried in the Clive Hunt archives all these years.
