since its the holidays and these threads are a bit fun, here's another. to qualify, it can be anyone in an act, but not the front guy or the band member that's "all that", but someone that contributes greatly and without which the band would not be the same. i'll start with a few. vh - michael anthony. spot on bass and great spot on backing vocals. elton john - davey johnston. great guitarist, ala "saturday night's alright" zz-top - frank beard. tremendous drummer. in fact, this could probably go to any three piece drummer. robin trower. james dewar. distinctive vocals and very good bass. ted nugent. derek st. holmes. probably the best ever rock vocalist, and fine guitarist. tom petty. mike campbell. great guitarist. very classy sound and fits just right in the band. yours??
