July 3, 1969...Brian Jones' life comes to a sad, wet end in a swimming pool. I prefer to remember the young pre-bloated Brian...like from the 1964 T.A.M.I. Show! Recorded at the Santa Monica Civic (still standing, folks!) 50 years ago this October. Dig that Vox teardrop guitar! R.I.P. Brian Jones.

R.I.P. Bobby Keys. A true rock and roll original and a Texas-sized legend. Forget the Rolling Stones...just consider that the man played with Buddy Holly, ferchrissakes! That guarantees rock and roll badass status, right there!

The man played hard and he partied hard...he lived every one of his 70 years to the fullest, no doubt and no complaints.

His passing reminds me how fortunate I was that I bit the bullet and payed the money to see the Stones on their last tour, providing me with one last view of the man and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear him and Mick Taylor trade solos on "Can't You Hear Me Knocking". To think I came this close to missing that...thank god I came to my senses.

I hope the bar is well-stocked in heaven.

Yes, musicians with the pedigree of Bobby Keys are few and far between. Funnily enough, I just finished reading his bio a little while back (Every Night's A Saturday Night) and considering all the booze and drugs he did back in the day it's amazing the man lived as long as he did!

The Stones are gonna feel the pinch on this one. Yeah, they can replace Bobby but somebody like that is pretty much irreplaceable. I'd reckon for The Stones losing Bobby Keys -who was about as official as an unofficial member could get- is up there with losing Ian Stewart.

From the BBC:

Bobby Keys: Stones devastated by saxophonist's death

  • 2 December 2014
  • From the section Music
_79465387_72591681(1).jpgBobby Keys on saxophone, left, played with The Rolling Stones for many years
The Rolling Stones say they're devastated over the death of Bobby Keys, who played saxophone for them.

On the rock'n'roll scene since the age of 15, Keys played with Buddy Holly, John Lennon and Eric Clapton.

The 70-year-old was most famous for his work with the Stones on the classic track Brown Sugar and their album Exile On Main Street.

The band issued a statement mourning "the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player".

The statement went on: "Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960s. He will be greatly missed."

Guitarist Keith Richards said: "I have lost the largest pal in the world and I can't express the sense of sadness I feel although Bobby would tell me to cheer up."

Keys featured in Richards' autobiography Life in 2010 and recalled the first time he met the Stones in the mid-1960s.

Like Buddy Holly, Keys was born in the Texas town of Lubbock and had toured with him and his band The Crickets in the 1950s.

But he was not impressed that the Stones had recorded a cover of Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away.

Keys recalled the moment: "I said 'Hey, that was Buddy's song. Who are these pasty-faced, funny-talking, skinny-legged guys to come over here and cash in on Buddy's song?'''

Keys played during the band's Glastonbury headline slot in 2013, although in October he was forced to pull out of dates in New Zealand and Australia due to poor health.

Very sad to learn of Bobby Keys' passing yesterday. I'm sure Keith is mourning his good friend, who coincidentally was born on the same day and same year.

We're losing good people. Was I the only one who didn't know Jack Bruce passed away in October?!

Monkey Man, a personal favorite, has never brought mental images of a lovely man with perfect teeth, but I like the ad:

How is this for a Christmas present? Of course, you might have to mortgage the house to afford it.

You have to hand it to Taschen...they really know how to pull out all the stops. If I had the $10,000 to blow, I am not sure which special Art Edition I would get...maybe the Ethan Russell cover or the Guy Webster.

Oh, don't get me wrong, Keith's a great storyteller, it's just that the idea of "Keith Richards writing a children's book" seems like a bad joke from a late night TV chat show host or something. Hell, I'll probably read the damn thing at some point...I couldn't give a toss about Madge's kiddie book though!
