Top 10 Rock Songs with a SaxophoneMetal_Treasure Sax isn't a common rock instrument but some music artists incorporated it successfully.
The Top Ten
Incredible song with amazing sax solo by Junior Walker - in 1981 this song hit #1 on the Billboard Rock Tracks chart and held this position for 4 weeks.
Foreigner wanted a "Junior Walker-style" sax solo for this song. While recording the album they read in a newspaper that Walker was performing that night mere blocks from their recording studio. They went there and promised a pretty good payday so he accepted the offer to play even though he had never heard of Foreigner.
Foreigner played the raw track for him and asked him to improvise a solo. After a SINGLE listening, he amazed the band by cutting one of the most memorable sax solos in rock history in ONE take. - Metal_Treasure
Probably the only INXS song I truly like - not for the sax but sax is one of the highlights. - Metal_Treasure
Stronger than dirt!
Brings a lot of Clarence Clemons jams to mind. - Ned964
