Personal Quote:

[1990, in an AP interview] "Yakety Sax" will be my trademark. I'll hang my hat on it. It's kept me alive. Every sax player in the world has tried to play it. Some are good, some are awful.


During his career, he recorded more than 40 albums, and played in Nashville nightclubs regularly for 30 years. He had his own nightclub for 17 years, closing it in 1994. See more »
