strat0124 Posted August 10, 2001 Share Posted August 10, 2001 Having been one, and knowing the lack of recognition some "big" players get, I feel this is a worthy topic. A place to give your votes for all the cool sidemen out there. My numero uno would have to be Ron Wood. Whether it was the Faces, helping Rod the Mod out solo, or with the Stones.....very tasteful play. He does cool stuff with pedal steel, b-bender, dobro, mandolin as well....he's one of my favorites. Another one that might surprise you, Isaac Hayes. He was in Sam and Dave's band, and wrote alot of their big hits. Listening to him on B3 alone is a damn joy. He's a monster. Johnny Lee Schell.....longtime Bonnie Raitt guitarist/singer/songwriter is phenom as well. Don't know if I spelled his name right. Luther Perkins in Johnny Cash's original Tennesee Two. Don't know if Johnny would have been as big without his signature tick tack lick. There's alot of beauty in it's simplicity. David Grissom......first time I heard him was in Joe Ely's band....just ripping, now he is or was in Storyville, and I think he had a stint in John Cougar Mellancamp's band. He makes that PRS just rip....another monster player, with lots of feel. And you gotta know that Double Trouble are the dynamic duo from hell....the question is....who haven't they played with?????? Damn they are solid. So whats yours? Gene Down like a dollar comin up against a yen, doin pretty good for the shape I'm in Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
