Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Guitarist ‘Big Jim’ Sullivan

You Tube

British session guitarist Jim Sullivan died in October 2012 at age 71 after a long period of poor health. Sullivan played on over 1,000 chart hits — including 55 No. 1 singles. His resume reads like a who’s who of rock royalty, as he worked with everyone from Eddie Cochran and Donovan to George Harrison and Dusty Springfield.

He was a teacher and mentor to both Steve Howe and Ritchie Blackmore, and was the house guitarist on the legendary British music television shows Top of the Pops and Ready Steady Go.
