(AP) – Rolling Stones’ saxophone player Bobby Keys, who also performed
on recordings with John Lennon and Eric Clapton, has died at his home in
Franklin, Tennessee.

Michael Webb, who played keyboard with Keys, said Keys died on Tuesday
after a lengthy illness. Keys had been out on tour with the Stones earlier this
year before his health prevented him from performing.
