Ed Tarkington –Nashville Scene

Bobby Keys died at 70 in 2014. But not before leaving his musical thumbprint all over recordings by the Stones, Marvin Gaye, Eric Clapton, Barbra Streisand, Dr. John, Joe Cocker, three of the four Beatles and scores of others. Fans of The Rolling Stones’ masterpiece ‘Exile on Main Street’ can hear some of his best-known work.

Andrew Dansby –Houston Chronicle

Pete Best and The Beatles. Dave Mustaine and Metallica. Every legendary band has that one member that helped define their sound, then fell from favor. In most cases, they were a founder who never surrounded the maelstrom of the early years. Not Bobby Keys, the man that became known as ”the sixth Rolling Stone.”
