When you think about classic rock certain instruments come immediately to mind. The first being the electric guitar, which is undoubtedly the most important instrument in rock music. After the guitar, drums and bass are critical component instruments for the genre. But once you have the classic vocals/guitar/bass/drums set up what other instruments have made a palpable dent in rock music? Well, I would say that the keyboard would come next, whether it be piano, organ or synthesizer, but after keyboards the saxophone would be next in line. In jazz and funk music the sax is integral, but in rock & roll it's more of a periphery instrument. For this playlist I've chosen 10 classic rock songs that I feel contain the most memorable sax solos to date. It's a great representation of how well the saxophone can be integrated into rock music.
