RIP, BOBBY!!! MY INTERVIEW WITH BOBBY KEYS TALKING ABOUT STONES AND SUFFERING BASTARDS

THIS INTERVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED IN FEBRUARY 2012, WHEN THE SUFFERING BASTARDS WERE COMING TO TOWN. HAVING HAD NO TIME TO REVIEW IT AFTER HEARING WORD OF BOBBY KEYS' PASSING TODAY, I APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING THAT'S NOT ACCURATE OR TIMELY. I AM GONNA MISS THAT MAN ON STAGE WITH OUR BOYS...

 

 

Bobby Keys & The Suffering Bastards are coming to our area, March 10th at The Kesick Theater. So, given a shot to talk with the man who drives songs like "Brown Sugar" and "Live With Me," I jumped at the chance.Thanks to Jennifer Muscatello for hooking us up!

From his early days recording with Elvis Presley and Dion DiMucci, through his storied recording career with The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Joe Cocker, as well as Beatles solo outings, Bobby Keys has been (and is) one of the premier sax players in the world! He even gives a glimpse at how his current band came together and got its name!

I recognized the phone number I was given as being a Nashville area code, but had no idea what number I was calling, I was a bit surprised when Bobby answered his home phone. That's where the conversation begins...
