It's no secret that a very large number of rock bands use session players when making records. A lot of people may think that the use of session players means the band using them is not capable of playing the songs they record, but that's just not true. I'll give you an example.

The Beach Boys were perfectly capable of playing all their hits live, but it was much easier for Brian Wilson to use session players for the records so the rest of the group could be on tour.

With that thought in mind:
