Bobby Keys is responsible for performing some of the most well-known saxophone parts in rock ‘n’ roll history. He was days away from his 71st birthday when he passed away on this date in 2014.
Keys left behind one of the most impressive resumes having recorded with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, B.B. King, John Lennon, Delaney & Bonnie and many others. This edition of Saturday Stream presents a career-spanning Spotify Playlist of tracks to which Keys contributed.
Perhaps best known for his affiliation with The Rolling Stones both in the studio and as a longtime touring member, Keys can be heard on six tracks released by the legendary band. In addition to recordings by the other above-mentioned musicians, the playlist also has songs by such renowned performers as George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Harry Nilsson, Dr. John, Graham Nash, Warren Zevon, Marvin Gaye, Jim Carroll, Van Dyke Parks, Martha Reeves, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Faces.
