Bobby didn't play on Tattoo You. The saxophonist there was ..... jazz legend Sonny Rollins.

Solo album[edit]

He had one solo album, Bobby Keys (Warner Bros. K 46141), released in 1972. Shouldn't the article mention this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:32, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Surname spelling[edit]

Is it "Keys" or "Keyes"? This needs a definitive source, and then an appropriate redirect added. "Bobby Keyes" is credited on several wikipedia articles. Both spellings appear on

I did some checking, his solo releases are spelt KEYS, though many other sources spell it Keyes. There is also a US guitarist Bobby Keyes. Design 08:11, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Type of sax[edit]

This article doesn't mention what type of sax Bobby played. Is it known what he played? 02:28, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

re: bobby keys[edit]

Most sources I've checked, including V. Bockris's early '90s bio of Keith Richards, spell it "Keys."

Trivia: Bobby Keys and Keith Richards, who shared "a lot" (i.e., heroin addiction) back in the '70s, were also born the same day: Dec. 18, 1943. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Maccb (talkcontribs) 02:50, 16 January 2007 (UTC).

Drug Use[edit]

Bobby Keys, like Keith Richards, had a heavy addiction to heroin in the 1970s. I think this should be mentioned in the article. Wikipediarules2221 19:20, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Is his illness noteworthy?

"Kenny Keys ~ No DNA needed !"[edit]

Sometime in the early 2002s to 2003s a heavy metal band was headlining at "The Fox" on the hill in Boulder { Colorado } a hot spot for the CU music scene.

Kenny Keys was the featured singer. I just had to meet this kid so after the show I made it a point to go see the obvious son of Bobby.

I was a little surprised at the situations it unraveled in the conversation as he obviously was not 100% sure that his dad was Bobby.

I invited him up to the apartment we had above the Sorority house at the time to show him a poster which had a picture of his dad close up.

He said he had planned a trip to meet him and maybe even have a DNA test. I took a second look at this kid, as if it was necessary because he was

so much the spitting image of his dad it was spooky.

I have noticed in a few places that his children in Tennessee were mentioned by name but no mention of Kenny. Oh well …none of my Beezwax..maybe he used a different name.

But if not…somewhere out there is a digital copy of the Sax man himself living west of the Mississippi.

Hope this revelation only has positive results. Families are usually private stuff however sometimes there comes a shy child who needs a little push.

Maybe this is the case…maybe not.

Bobby Keys was one of there freindliest un pretentious musicians I ever met… But I may be the only person ever to visit Keith's house and remain asleep in the car... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:08, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
