Best friends with guitarist Keith Richards and considered the 6th Stone, Bobby Keys is best rock’n’roll saxophonist in the world. He is best known for his work with, among others, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton and an endless number of Texas musicians who are featured in the film, including Joe Ely. Keys is recognised famously for his work on Brown Sugar and the album Exile on Main Street.
Bobby’s story of a small town Texas kid who knew Buddy Holly, found the road out of town through music, played with Elvis and Donovan, achieved rock’n’roll stardom with The Stones only to crash and burn before a comeback again with the band has resonated.
“It’s all told in the affectionate and entertaining style of a good ol’ boy living it up at the epicentre of rock excess.”
