Steve Cropper

Considered an integral part of the Stax Records, and thus American R&B legend is rhythm guitarist extraordinaire Steve Cropper. 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, Cropper was literally involved in virtually every record issued by Stax from the fall 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,” Cropper is in line for immortality.
