One of the most well-known and respected saxophone players in the history of rock ‘n’ roll, Bobby Keys, has died. He was 70 years old.

Keys was best known for his work with The Rolling Stones, and made an impact with his melodic yet gritty style for over 40 years of playing live and on many famous records.

Keys was born in Texas and was known for living the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle to the fullest. His stories of parties, drugs, alcohol, and sex were legendary in the world of rock.

The saxophonist was particularly fond of marijuana, and spoke openly about his weed habit on many occasions. He told Rolling Stone magazine that he never let a day go by for over 50 years without smoking, unless he happened to be in prison at the time.

Keys played with a huge amount of big names in the rock world, including Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Joe Cocker, Sheryl Crow and many more.
