Rolling Stones Saxophonist Bobby Keys Dead at 70

By Patrick Doyle | December 2, 2014

Bobby Keys, the larger-than-life saxophone player who toured with the Rolling Stones for more than 45 years and played on studio classics like "Brown Sugar" and "Live With Me," has passed away. He was 70.

"If you believe in the magic of rock & roll, which I devoutly do, it isn't in the individual," Keys told Rolling Stone in 2012. "I’ve played in bands with A-team players around, but unless they can play together, it doesn’t do any good."

"The Rolling Stones are devastated by the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player, Bobby Keys," the band said in a statement. "Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960s. He will be greatly missed."

“I have lost the largest pal in the world and I can't express the sense of sadness I feel, although Bobby would tell me to cheer up," Stones guitarist Keith Richards said in a statement. "My condolences to all that knew him and his love of music.”

exactly. Succintly put and easy (I hope) for anyone to understand. These comments by Chris Rock

I respect way more than the video about how not to get your ass kicked because it is not about NOT getting your ass kicked at all.

It is about HOW the PERSON in CHARGE handles their self.

That is the issue.

substitute sexism for racism and females for black people and it all becomes really, really clear.

Reads like this =

Sexism is not our fault or our problem to solve. We are the victims, not the cause. I'm tired of females being told it is up to us to end sexism. If we had the ability, it would have been ended long ago.

bravenak, excuse me for this but, I have to jump off your post to point out how the two overlap.

Thank you for understanding.
