I saw him many years ago at an event called The Taste of Blue Ash playing with someone famous and I can't remember who.
Maybe Wilson Pickett.
All I remember was he was introduced from the stage as the guy who played the intro to 'My Girl'.
The innernets sez otherwise.
I didn't know who he was back then.
