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.

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.
