    Lukather: "It was a real honor last Wednesday. So many memories and reunions with dear old friends and I have to say Quincy treated me and the guys with such love... I was 23 when I did the DUDE record, 24-25 for Thriller etc... all the songs and HIS body of work... To be a small part of a HUGE musical legacy was humbling and I still can't believe 30+ years have gone by. God Bless and thanks Q and Nathan East for making it happen!

  6. Hired Guns: The 10 Greatest Session Guitarists

    - By Arend, Apr 18, 2011 12:00 AM
    Session guitarists are often the music world’s equivalent of baseball’s utility infielder—unheralded players whose talents are cloaked in anonymity. Ironically, however, such guitarists also tend to be supremely accomplished, possessing, as they do, the versatility and improvisational skills necessary to accommodate a wide range of styles. Some go on to make a name for themselves beyond session work, while others are content to maintain their roles as indispensable studio mavens. Below are ten players who represent both sides of that spectrum.
