“I’ve been doing ‘Dave’ for 50 years. It’s fun to do some songs I grew up with, so it’ll be a big mix of stuff, and it should be very cool,” says Dave Mason about his first ever summer team-up with Steve Cropper, two titans of music making their first appearance on the Guitar Masters stage.
Mason had founded two bands by the time he was 15. He’s an original member of Traffic, whose debut Mr. Fantasy LP in 1967 changed the paradigm of the British Invasion. A prolific writer, he has penned more than 100 songs including his signature hit “Feelin’ Alright.” He performed on The Rolling Stones’ Beggars’ Banquet, George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, Paul McCartney’s Listen To What The Man Said and Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland.
Steve Cropper is, by all rights, the best-known soul guitarist in the world. A member of Booker T and the MG’s, the Stax Records house band during the label’s most influential period, he co-wrote Otis Redding’s “Dock of The Bay” and backed artists such as Redding, Carla Thomas, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Rufus Thomas. He was the lead guitarist in both Blues Brothers movies and in 1996, England’s Mojo Magazine rated him number two guitarist of all-time (Jimi Hendrix was number one).
