Hugh McCracken, Session Man, Dies

One of the legendary session guitarists of the past 45 years, Hugh McCracken has died.  He worked with a Who's Who on some of their best albums, including John and Paul, Steely Dan, Loudon, Dr. John and and on.   Credits are not quite clear but he might have provided one of the most famous guitar bits of the 1960s, for Van the Man's "Brown-Eyed Girl."  Below that, playing rhythm guitar on B.B.'s "The Thrill Is Gone."
