Steve Cropper is a musical legend.
If Yankee Stadium is “the house that Babe Ruth built,” Stax Records is “the house that Booker T, and the MG’s built.” Integral to that potent combination is MG guitarist extraordinaire Steve Cropper.
Yes, Steve Cropper is a musical legend!
As a guitarist, A & R man, engineer, producer, songwriting partner of Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd and a dozen others and founding member of both Booker T. and the MG’s and The Mar-Keys, Steve Cropper was literally involved in every single record issued by Stax Records from the autumn of 1961 through year end 1970. Such credits assure Cropper of an honored place in the soul music hall of fame.
As co-writer of (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay, Knock on Wood and In the Midnight Hour, Steve Cropper is in line for immortality.
Perhaps the ultimate testament to Steve Cropper’s immense contribution to popular music over the last four decades was his ranking by Mojo Magazine as the number two guitarist of all-time (Jimi Hendrix was number one). And in 2003, Rolling Stone magazine readers voted him among the Top 100 Guitar Players of all-time.
As impressive as that is, Steve Cropper’s legacy as a solo artist, member of Booker T. and the MG’s and the Blues Brothers, session musician and producer are far from complete. Steve Cropper loves playing 2013 will see him at the best!
