The Bobby Keys Band: Mercy Lounge, Nashville
Holly Gleason, No Depression, 3 May 2011
THERE ARE FEW musicians synonymous with an oeuvre or a sound, yet Bobby Keys pretty much defines rock & roll saxophone, especially of the Rolling Stones varietal. Sweaty, moist, intense, raw, in your face yet melodic, his riffs have been as much a part of AOR radio as Mick's yowl or Keith's downstroke.
