Format: Hardcover
Bobby Keys may not be a household name to many people but if I were to mention some of the many artists he's worked with over the years you'd understand why he has been an in-demand session and touring saxophone player since the 50s, and has been touring with the Rolling Stones since 1971, so that alone justifies this autobiography `Every Night's A Saturday Night'. Add to that, his performance on records by Elvis Presley, George Harrison, John Lennon and Joe Cocker to name just a few, and he even hung out with the legendary Buddy Holly.
From the opening pages of this book, which include a glowing foreword by Keith Richards who calls him "my most trusted friend", you can see that Keys is the unsung hero of several records and tours by the Rolling Stones.
The book charts his upbringing in Slaton, Texas, and his introduction to Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf records, a crash-course in how he hot-wired his grandfathers car to get to the other side of town, but it was 1954 that his life changed when out of his bedroom window he would hear Buddy Holly and his band performing at the opening of a Gas station, and using his grandmothers Green Stamps he traded them in for Burgers & Cokes for Holly and the band, and that was his way of getting in with these guys who were 6-7 years older than him.
We learn that he grew up on a diet of Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Fats Domino, and getting to see Elvis in concert at the age of 13 would ultimately change his life.

This book is a must for anyone who loves the late sixties / early seventies. Bobbys blown his horn for nearly all the greats of that era!And Boy does he have some tales to tell!

Bobby, please stick to Sax and to the Stones. Your book is the most boring and eventless autobiography I have ever read in my life. And I have read a lot.....
