Top 10 Rock Songs with a SaxophoneSax isn't a common rock instrument but some music artists incorporated it successfully.
The Top Ten
So, just to clarify, do you or don't you want original 50s rock and roll stuff on here? I'm only asking because people used a lot of saxophone in those days. - Gg2000
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
