“Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” is a song by British rock and roll band The Rolling Stones from their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine listed it at #25 on its list of “The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time.”
The song begins with a guitar intro that both Keith Richards and Mick Taylor contributed to, evolving into a rhythm riff played by Richards. At two minutes and forty-three seconds, an instrumental break begins, with Rocky Dijon on congas; saxophonist Bobby Keys performs an extended saxophone solo over the layered guitar work of Richards and Taylor. Taylor then takes over from Keys and carries the song to its finish with a lengthy guitar solo.
