Full description for Every Night is a Saturday Night
Bobby Keys, legendary saxophonist for The Rolling Stones and countless others, tells his story the way he plays his horn - with gleeful abandon. Born in Slaton, Texas, Bobby Keys has lived the kind of life that qualifies as a rock 'n' roll folktale. In his early teens, Keys bribed his way into his neighbour Buddy Holly's garage band rehearsals. He took up the saxophone because it was the only instrument left unclaimed in the school band, and he convinced his grandfather to sign his guardianship over to Crickets drummer J.I. Allison so that he could go on tour as a teenager. Keys spent years on the road during the early days of rock 'n' roll with hitmakers like Bobby Vee and the various acts on Dick Clark's "Caravan of Stars Tour", followed by decades as top touring and session sax man for the likes of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and onto, most famously, his gig as a de facto Rolling Stone from 1970 onward. "Every Night is a Saturday Night" finds Keys setting down the many tales of an over-the-top rock 'n' roll life in his own inimitable voice. Augmented by exclusive interviews with famous friends and fellow travellers like Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Joe Crocker, and J.I. Allison, "A Beautiful Buzz" paints a unique picture of the coming-of-age of rock 'n' roll itself while celebrating how Key's raw talent and outsized personality have elevated him from sideman to a rock 'n' roll icon.
