Keith Richards outlives another Stones musician. Unbelievable.
Bobby Keys' sax is all over "Exile." A college roommate (saxman) pointed this out to me long ago, and gave me an appreciation for his work.
I was surprised though when I learned today that Keys did not play my favorite sax solo in a Stones tune, the one in "Miss You."
That was recorded during Bobby's exile from the band due to his excessive behavior in the early 70s, if you can believe it.
A guy who partied too hard for the Stones, and lived to tell about it.

Kicked out of the Stones for too much partying? Dang, when Keith Richards tells you you have a problem . . .

[1][3] That's almost impossible to believe.
[2] Classic!

[3][4] Well, it also happened to the founder, Brian Jones. As hard as it is to believe, they do have limits.
