We have to wish a very happy birthday to Steve Cropper, also known as Steve "The Colonel" Cropper. He is best known as the guitarist of the Stax Records house band, Booker T & The MGs, and has backed artists such as Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Rufus Thomas and Johnnie Taylor, also acting as producer on many of these records.
He later gained fame as a member of the The Blues Brothers band. Rolling Stone lists him 36th on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Mojo ranks Cropper as the second-best guitarist ever.
Steve turns 77 today. Happy Birthday Steve!!
