Album: Let It Bleed
. . .
Time to pour one out for Bobby Keys, a sharp-witted, fun-loving Texas-born saxophonist who became one of Keith’s best friends at least partially since they shared the exact same birthday, right down to the year. While Keys would be integral to the next few Stones records — eventually either being tossed for filling a bathtub with Dom Perignon or voluntarily leaving their orbit to deal with his inevitable smack addiction — on Let It Bleed, he only had a cameo.
But, as we’ll see, it was a pretty fucking great cameo.
