Really a sad one. Reduces the level of excitement and authenticity for future Rolling Stones concerts. I'm glad I got to see him with them plenty of times over the years, just his presence always added a lot.

Sad, I'm 60 now and all these passings are really adding up for the baby-boomers, makes you think a bit! I liked his sax playing on all those old Stones recordings, it fit them very nicely . . .

Its sad and you see this thing happening more and more now. He was as close as Ian Stewart was to the Stones as much as they might have played it down in the past.

I know I saw him with the Stones, I think I saw him with Ely, too but I'm not sure if that was live or just videos.

 

What a bummer. Thanks for all of it, Bobby.

Born on the same day as Keith, making it even more amazing KR is still with us considering all he has gone through. An end to an era though. Maybe the quintessential rock and roll sax player with Clarence....both now sadly gone.

 

Yeah same birthday as me also. Clarence and Bobby were both King Curtiss fans.

Ran into him twice, a long, long time ago in STL. A band I was in opened for Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. He was a part of that group ( and many of the guys in that band went on to be Derek & the Dominos) and again a few years later with Dave Mason.

 

Don't recall any conversations with him other then hi.

 

Sorry to hear the sad news.

everything that Keith alludes to in this article he went into depth in his autobiography.

Yeah, I read "Life" as well. But it's nice to have all that in one place as a tribute to Bobby from Keith.
