Thursday To-Do: Bobby Keys

Keith and Bobby in "Cocksucker Blues."

BOBBY KEYS
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

 If you've managed to find a bootleg copy of the great Stones' documentary “Cocksucker Blues,” you probably remember Bobby Keys. Captured on a Denver stop during the band's debauched 1972 North American tour, he and Keith Richards hurl a TV out of a hotel window 10 flights up. For some 40 years, the Texas-born saxophonist has been stirring up trouble with Keif and co., which makes him probably the most tenured auxiliary member of the Rolling Stones. That's him honking, wildly, on “Brown Sugar” and dozens more of your favorite Stones' songs. It's been a long, wild ride. Born in Slaton, near Lubbock, in 1943 (on the same day as Keith Richards), Keys came up blowing his horn, going out on the road with the Crickets when he was just 15 and later working with Buddy Holly and Bobby Vee. In the late '60s, he did session work in Muscle Shoals. Following his appearance, in 1969, on “Let It Bleed,” he became much in demand, playing on albums with Eric Clapton to B.B. King. These days, when the Stones aren't touring, Keys still kicks around Lubbock, stirring up trouble.
