Legendary Guitarist Reggie Young died. Don't tell you have never heard of him because I KNOW that you have!

Guitarist Reggie Young, a Memphis- and Nashville-based session player whose signature licks defined hit records from Elvis, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and many more, has died. He was 82.

Friend and fellow Nashville Cats session musician David Briggs said Young died Thursday at his home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Young started his illustrious career in Memphis, where he was an in-demand session player working with acclaimed producer Chips Moman, and opened for the Beatles with the Bill Black Combo in 1964. At Moman's American Studio in Memphis, he played the signature sitar intro on "Hooked on a Feeling," by B.J. Thomas, and played guitar on "Son of a Preacher Man" by Dusty Springfield, "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond, and "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis Presley.

After moving to Nashville in the 1970s, he became part of the Nashville Cats session players recording hundreds of songs for top country stars. Young added guitar to No. 1 records including "Luckenbach, Texas," by Jennings, "Pancho and Lefty" by Nelson and Merle Haggard and "Always On My Mind," by Nelson.

When the Highwaymen super group formed between Nelson, Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson, Young played on their No. 1 records and even toured with them.

His first-ever album, containing a collection of hits he played on from Memphis to Nashville, was due out later this month through London-based record label Ace.

Piggybacking on what I had said before... Reggie Young was also a member of the supergroup called The Highwaymen

Hey, yeah, I read up about him. Kind of sad he' s not even mentioned in their wikipedia page. I'll check out more about him when I' m back at my computer...

Well it IS Wikipedia after all 😂 but OK. Usually I wouldn't make such a fuss over a band member especially since I'm not a fan of the guy or the stuff he was involved with but when I read up on him because I had never heard of the name I realized that he probably played (no pun intended) a huge roll in music history!
