Few studio musicians ever have any notoriety. On the www.facebook.com/justplainfolks page, I linked a current JPF nominee who is now 77 years old, who did have one major hit (which has become the standard version of this often covered song"Hold Me, Kiss Me, Thrill Me" which was 55 years ago but which most people over 20 have heard (it was also in Jersey Boy's I was told by my wife) named Mel Carter who primarily had a world class studio musician career going back to Sam Cooke. These folks often make recordings great but don't get paid further nor are acknowledged without deep research, especially when they were singing much of what was heard vocally in the days before auto-tune.

Studio musicians are supposed to be given a % of digital royalties, but I fear it will never really get to the right people because as I understand it it is being generically paid to the unions to be distributed, and I don't remotely trust the money, whatever it adds up to, getting to those who need and deserve it. If they aren't still in, or never were in, the union, how would they ever get paid the money they earned? Perhaps there's been a change in how the money is to be paid, but if not, it's ineffectual at best and a small number of favored current studio guys will get the money and at worst, it's a scam padding the coffers of another union black hole probably to be spent on the next political election to curry favor with the powers that be, the opposite of the intent.

A musician blaming Unions for lack of royalty to pay? What an absurdly misguided, incorrect and musician like statement to make.

How about you join a music guild with your other fellow musicians so that everybody gets a fair deal? Wont? Right, cause you want all for yourself.

A musician, worth his skin, praises unions, he doesn't vilify them while corporate America is destroying music and robbing the entire country.

Sickens me to read this garbage. No wonder why so many people here build products rather then write songs.

So true Bob Most Innovative has to be Jimi Hendrix, and Kirk Cobain was more of a

composer than a guitarist,what he did do was invent clever Chord sequences that suited

his vocals

Les Paul would be high on any list of mine simply because he was the first Guitarist that

multi tracked and led the way to the rise of the Jazz and Rock guitar styles via amplification

using guitar pick ups:

The Crossroads Album Robert Johnson wow thats Innovation and so many more but

Its a highly subjective thing to make a list it all depends on what Genre of music you follow

One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.
