It made my Monday morning to discover Joe Bosso's feature on Waddy Wachtel at MusicRadar.

Through the 70's & early 80's, as a high demand LA session guitarist, Wachtel's trademark sound graced countless tunes, and several hits by a wide variety of artists. One of his specialties has always been the ability to complement singers, with great guitar lines placed just right.

1988 with Keef; Waddy as the USA Woody.

Waddy is still performing and in-demand, though his landmark stuff goes back a few decades. The MusicRadar piece touches on Wachtel's experiences working with some major artists on tracks that were pivotal to him. The insights make for a good read. I'm currently listening through the material, i.e. Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy", Keith Richard's Xpensive Wino's solo albums and a few others.

Hit the top link, and check out a nice recognition for one of the guitar community's major unsung heroes!
