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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wild ride through the history of Rock 'n' Roll 13. März 2012
Von Marilyn S. Ollila - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This enthralling book takes us on a rambunctious, wild ride through the history of rock 'n' roll from the perspective of singular sax man, Bobby Keys. His inimitable life story includes a riveting account of the making of many rock classics and a behind-the-scenes look at too many great moments and legendary musicians to name. From the earliest days of rock history with Buddy Holly in West Texas, through Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars, to the high times of 60's and 70's LA, New York and London, Keys played with everyone from Elvis, Eric Clapton, and Joe Cocker to George Harrison, John Lennon and most notably the Rolling Stones. A first-person account of the making of Exile on Main Street on the French Riviera is a notable highlight. This book is a look back at an incredible life from a guy who is still out there making inspired music today. A great read for lovers of rock music, pop culture, the great musicians of the past fifty years, and anyone who loves a good story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Met The Forrest Gump of Rock and Roll 8. April 2012
Von Boomerocity - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've got to interview lots of artists. As of this writing, I've conducted close to ninety interviews. The most fun are the kinds of interviews are the ones where the person is just rattling off story after story about their life and the people they've associated with over their careers. What is even more enjoyable is when those conversations are relaxed and folksy - without pretense or an uppity attitude.

One such person that I've recently interviewed is Bobby Keys, saxophonist for the Rolling Stones. To paraphrase what I wrote in that interview (visit Boomerocity.com), he's folksy and as country as cornbread - my kind of people! Bobby's a great guy to chat with and one of the most fun guys I've had the privilege of interviewing.

You might not be able to interview Bobby Keys yourself but I can offer you the next best thing: His autobiography, Every Night's A Saturday Night. Easy to read and very natural, you get the feel that you're sitting in Keys' family room, sipping on iced tea as he regales you with tales of his life as one of the go-to sax players in rock and roll. Because of who all he's worked with, I refer to him as the Forest Gump of Rock and Roll. When you read Saturday Night, you'll see what I'm talking about.

You'll read about the whole, complete story about his fabled bath in a tub of Dom Perignon. You read some very interesting stories about his friendship with John Lennon and his work with George Harrison and hanging with Harry Nilsson. You'll read about his tours with Joe Cocker as well as Delaney and Bonnie. He tells of his meetings with Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.

Of course, there are lots and lots of stories about some band called the Rolling Stones and some guys by the names of Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Mick Jagger and their keyboardist, Chuck Leavell. No, he really doesn't dish any dirt on the lads. As he said in my interview with him, that's all be said and done already. To Keys, it's all about the music and the friendships and that's what makes Every Night's A Saturday Night such a fun and enjoyable read.

It goes without saying that avid Stones fans will want this book. However, if you love true - and often hilarious - stories about some of the greatest names in rock music (as well as some of the songs and albums associated with them), you're going to want this book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not a tell all, but doesn't tell much 15. Mai 2012
Von Ralph - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Definitely not a tell all book. Nobody should be offended.
Enjoyed the stories about how he came to be the Stones Sax guy. Interesting to see the progression from Texas session guy to #1 sax player of choice.
But so much ground not covered. Given all the family background covered earlier, he eludes to 'being married at the time', here and there. No idea if the same woman - how/why he married, how the rock life impacted his marriage/family.
Just a lot of - there were a lot of girls - but other than a champagne bath no details, almost as if that was 'off limits'.
Did not learn a lot. Did make me want to check out some of the bands he played with.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fun and entertaining read! 21. April 2012
Von Martin A. Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Lots of fun - eliciting chuckles to guffaws, to outright laughter. A quick and very entertaining read written in a style that makes you feel that you're just sitting at the bar with Bobby and he's telling stories. A natural raconteur! I screamed through the book's 275 odd pages in a couple of hours. Very enjoyable.

But, why four stars? First, it's pretty clear that Bobby wasn't keeping a diary or journal, since there are several points in the narrative where the words "I think", "I don't recall/remember" are used. While that's not a real problem, it would be nice to know the accuracy of his recollections. For example, on pp. 85-86, "Opening for Blind Faith was great.. [...] ..pop festivals, Atlanta I remember, and one outside of Milwaukee or Chicago".

Let me fix that for you - it was The Midwest Rock Festival, on the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in West Allis Wisconsin (a western suburb of Milwaukee), July 26, 1969. This information, given 5 minutes with Google, is trivial to discover.

At another point in the book is pp. 230, "I forget where exactly this happened, what city we were in - maybe Detroit because I think we [The New Barbarians]were staying overnight in Milwaukee...".

Again - "I forget", "I think", ...etc. Again, two minutes with Google reveals that it was in Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Arena, April 29th, 1978 that a riot broke out because fans were disappointed that "Mick Jagger" didn't appear.

I lived in Milwaukee for many years, so maybe the above nitpicking is just my own axe to grind. Maybe not.

But, ultimately, I was disappointed by not a whisper or breath or mention of Bobby Keys eponymously titled solo album from 1972. It's not listed in the discography at the back of the book either. And a really NICE record it is too. Yes, it's long out of print, and a collector's item, but it's available if you don't mind spending some cash.

So, in summary - a little research on Bill Ditenhafer's part (or someone's) could've helped Bobby's recollections along a bit, and the exclusion of Bobby's solo album is quite surprising. The only thing I can assume is that Bobby disliked the record so much or thought it so insignificant that it wasn't worth noting. Bottom line though; I enjoyed the book a lot and am spending a good, healthy chunk of time today listening to Bobby Keys play his horn.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A few good stories 22. November 2012
Von kevnm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I love Bobby Keys' sax playing, especially with the Stones, and enjoyed reading about his time with Delaney & Bonnie, Joe Cocker, Leon Russell and other stars of the time. He's a better musician than storyteller, though. Like Greg Allman's recent memoir, this book demonstrates that a person can make powerful music and still have little to say about life. Despite traveling the world and working with some fascinating people, it comes down to some famous names, some sex and some needles. I guess you had to be there. I'm an inveterate reader of rock bios and memoirs and this one's enjoyable but nothing special. Bobby Keys can now say he's written a book. What's less clear is whether he's ever read one.
