One of the greatest American session guitarists of all time Tommy Tedesco died of lung cancer.on this day in 1997.  Guitar Player magazine described Tommy as the most recorded guitarist in history.

Tommy played on recordings by the Beach Boys, Everly Brothers, Supremes, Monkees, Association, Streisand, Elvis, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Zappa, Sam Cooke Cher, and many many more. It is highly unlikely we'll ever see one like him again.
