Bobby Keys and Ian McLagan pass away

Bobby Keys and Ian McLagan

Bobby Keys and Ian McLagan

They both played with THE ROLLING STONES, they both lived in Texas, they both used to have fun, and they died within a day’s span. Yet they were different, American saxophonist Bobby Keys a star accompanist whose credits are aplenty and include former Beatles, and British keyboardist Ian McLagan, a member of SMALL FACES and THE FACES. When Keys didn’t join THE STONES on their current tour of Australia, it was clear something wasn’t right, and he was ill indeed; but Mac’s stroke was unexpected. Much can be said about their contribution to rock ‘n’ roll, yet words wouldn’t be enough to say that. R.I.P., Ian and Bobby.
