From Keith Richards saluting vocalist Merry Clayton of "Gimme Shelter" fame to an all-star gathering of jazz musicians paying tribute to saxophonist Sonny Rollins, the stage of the Apollo Theater was a showcase for friends stepping up on behalf of honored and absent guests.T.S. Monk remembered the saxophonist as one of many famous musicians he knew as a child and called Rollins "one of the absolute kings of melody".Rollins and Clayton each have a history with Richards, Thursday's final act.With neither Clayton nor Mick Jagger in house, Richards took turns on vocals for "Gimme Shelter" with Dash and longtime Stones backup singers Bernard Fowler and Lisa Fischer.
