Steve Smith with Journey - Who was he and why was he important to the sound? Did he play on ALL the hits? Sadly, unless you read the album credits, his name doesn't mean as much to Journey as Neil, Johnathon or Steve Perry.

Neil Murray with Whitesnake - I agree but when WS changed their style and became a popular band, his name is but a mere footnote to the name. Ask any younger gen who Neil Murray is and they don't have a clue but ask them who David Coverdale is and you have a better chance at getting an answer.

Billy Sheehan and Pat Torpey with Mr. Big - Agree 100% about Sheehan. his playing makes up part of the overall sound of Mr. Big. Pat as good as he is,
on the other hand is faceless in the sea of Mike Portnoys....

Troy Lucketta with Tesla - This is one of the few bands that truely create and work together on the overall sound. Jeff & Frank are the only members that general fans can remember by name though. Hardcore music and Tesla fans see this differently

Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd with AC/DC - Tell that to Simon Wright, Chris Slade & Mark Evans. LOL The point is even my AC/DC loving nephew didn't know these 2 by name and even had trouble with Malcolm as well but at least he knew it was Angus' brother! My nephew is 16 but way into more modern music with a few classic thrown in.

Tico Torres with Bon Jovi - He's made a name for himself in the role. Not a key member but is hard to replace.

I know nothing of Blackfoot other thanm Rickey Medlocke was once in the band....
