Here's another musician (keyboards) who claims to have played on every single Motown record from the '60s and '70s, and that for all of those sessions, he was paid a total of $80. Aren't there, like, a bunch of these guys now?
Johnny Griffith was never played in a game.
Quite apart from receiving the Purple Heart, The Bronze Star and The Combat Infantryman Badge in World War II, he was Marshall Dillion on Gunsmoke. Dude was a BADASS.
