Steve Cropper

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).
