    If you know of a cool or interesting callaboration, post it, if you don't know of anything, well now WAKE up! ... maybe you'll learn something here!


    I didn't know until recently that Stevie Ray Vaughan played the guitar parts on David Bowie's 1983 Let's Dance! Wow, :eeks I knew the song had some tasty guitar parts but didn't know it was Stevie playing them.

    Of course everyone knows this one: EVH played on Michael Jackson's Beat It! I thought that was pretty cool too.




    Next?

    Steve Lukather did the rhythm guitars on Beat it too.
    Only realised recently Dave Gilmore did a lot on Kate Bush's work.

    Randy "Yo Dawg" Jackson, of American Idol judge Fame, is the bass player on the Divinyls song "I Touch Myself".



    I know he was a studio musician who played on tons of songs, but for some reason I always find this fact more awesome than the rest. :)

    Around 1978 John Mclaughlin brought Tony Williams and Jack Bruce together again for a Lifetime sans Larry Young tribute on his Electric Guitarist album...and damn is it SICK!

    Slash played with Carole King in the 90s. They did "I Feel the Earth Move" and "Locomotion" on Letterman. He also played on a live album of hers doing "Hold Out For Love".

    If Slash can play "Locomotion" then I can play just about any cover. :eek:

    Bryan Adams and KISS! I remember first seeing that name on the dust sleeve of the Creatures of the Night album (I read every word over and over as I cranked that album) and when "Cuts Like A Knife" came out shortly after thought Is that the same guy? Naaaaah, no way... Sure enough it was him, he co-wrote a few others on that record, too. That's definitely not the first name you'd think of when you hear this:






    Another odd KISS combo was the year before on The Elder – the name Lou Reed appears on those credits a few times.[FONT=&quot][/FONT]

    John Mc Fee (Clover, Doobie Brothers) played pedal steel on the Grateful Dead's "Pride of Cucamonga."

    Of course, Jerry Garcia played pedal steel on CSN&Y's "Teach Your Children."

    Remember Michael Sembello who did Maniac in the Flashshit, I mean Flashdance movie???

    Look at this bio...BEFORE the 80's...

    Sembello was born and raised in the Philadelphia PA western suburb of Ardmore. He studied with jazz great Pat Martino and began his career in music as a session musician, working increasingly with high-profile artists as a guitarist. By age 17 he was working professionally with Stevie Wonder on electric and acoustic guitar as a studio player on Wonder's Fulfillingness' First Finale. He continued the same year, chosen as one of the core artists who worked on Songs in the Key of Life, an ambitious concept album that took two years in the making. He was credited as lead and rhythm guitarist on most of the tracks, and shares songwriting credit with Wonder on the song "Saturn". The list of pop music personalities he worked with, or wrote for, includes Wonder (from 1974 to 1979), The Temptations, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, George Benson, Barbra Streisand, Stanley Clarke, David Sanborn, Donna Summer, Miguel Mateos and New Edition among many others.

    There's a pretty good chance that SRV would've been just another journeyman blues dood, if Bowie hadn't given him that break...

    Lukather wrote and played on The Tubes "She's a Beauty" and "Talk to Ya Later."

    Clover, and some future members of Huey Lewis and The News, backed up Elvis Costello on "My Aim is True."

    Randy Jackson was in Journey.

    Pete Townshend produced and sang some vocals on "Something in the Air" by Thunderclap Newman.
