Jeff “Skunk” Baxter has been called ‘the most interesting man in music’ by NPR and it’s not hard to figure out why. A virtuoso guitar play and member of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Skunk is a founding member of the iconic Steely Dan, and later joined The Doobie Brothers, bringing his friend Michael McDonald into the band as their new lead singer, leading to the height of their commercial success. His playing on songs like “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” and “What A Fool Believes” are just two stellar examples of his work with those groups. As an in-demand session player, Jeff’s guitar work can be heard all over all-time iconic classics like the solos on Donna Summer’s “Bad Girls” & “Hot Stuff;” Dolly Parton’s “9 To 5” and classics by Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and Joni Mitchell. On top of all that, Jeff is also a ballistic missile defense specialist and a counterterrorism expert who works as a consultant for the US Department of Defense - shattering the stereotype of your typical Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame guitar player.
