Metro,

There were others indeed, of which the two you mentioned. I however feel that they were not in the same category. Ira is based in NY and he was popular indeed, as were Steve Khan, Sid McGinnis and David Spinozza.

You had guys like Paul Pesco, David Williams, WahWah Watson and a few others who had a good name too.

Of course, and I could beat myself for forgetting him, there is the AMAZING Paul Jackson Jr., who is one of the most recorded guitar players of all time. He currently can be seen every night as part of Jay Leno's house band. One of my favourite guitar players of all time.

Guys like Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour were huge in the 70's and 80's as well.

The A-list in the 80's to me were:

Guitars: Pierce, Landau, Lukather, Jackson Jr., carlton, Ritenour, Huff, Thompson
Bass: Stubenhaus, Laboriel Sr., Sklar, Johnson, East, Miller, Lee, Washington
Drums: Porcaro, Vega, Baird, Lawson, Gadd, Colaiuta, Robinson
