LACSCS: Bobby Keys has been on nearly all the Rolling Stones’ tours

Keith Richards said in his autobiography “Life,” that Bobby Keys is “my closest pal. A soul of rock ’n roll, a solid man and also a depraved maniac.”

Keys is best known as the “sixth” man of the Rolling Stones. He said, “I’m not a member of the Stones, but a well-paid assistant.” He is the sax player with some well-known solos. He played on “Honky Tonk Women,” “Sticky Fingers,” “Rip This Joint,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” “Bitch,” and many more Rolling Stones hits. Keys played on every Stones album from 1969 through 1973 and then from 1980 to the present. He’s been on all their tours since 1970, except the 1976 tour when Mick Jagger angry with him.
