There have been plenty of people in the music industry who get talked up by everyone. Whether it's some pop singer or a guitarist who is just on another plain of existence, there's no real debating the accolades on display with people like Jimi Hendrix or Robert Plant. Then again, it's just as much about the people in the background as it is about those in the spotlight.
No matter how many people have come and gone from the spotlight, they're only as good as the people in the background who got them there. As opposed to relishing in the limelight, these are the few geniuses of rock music who don't really get mentioned as much as their more famous counterparts. From a bass player who never got their fair due to session players, these guys have had a far greater impact than some may have realized.
Some of the biggest snubs in the business aren't even band members, but rather producers, managers, and even songwriters who helped bring these basic songs to life. After years of being left in the dark, these folks definitely deserve their turn in the spotlight. Have a look and see the real faces behind some of your favorite tunes.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
