The Top Ten Rock Songs with a Saxophone
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
His stuff is full of great saxophone solos; this is my favorite one. - Gg2000
In fact it has a Saxaphone solo a very good one too - christangrant
Stronger than dirt!
I actually did this song in my band class - RushFan123
I'm puzzled by this. "Nights" has flute, mellotron, and orchestra, but no saxophone to my knowledge. There IS saxophone on "I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band". - Crwth
I think the saxophone solo at end is really cool. - Gg2000
Bobby Keys played a lot of great saxophone solos for the Stones. This is my favorite; it's just got that "in-your-face" feel to it. - Gg2000
From early 1980's and haunts me still!
