Born in Slaton, Texas, some 15 miles southeast of Lubbock, 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 neighbor 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. A Beautiful Buzz 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 travelers 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 Keys’s raw talent and outsized personality have elevated him from sideman to a rock ‘n’ roll icon.
