Like me, you probably heard Bobby Whitlock in Derek and the Dominos. I first noticed him on the In Concert album. Hard not to, I guess. Not to be confused with the Bobby Whitlock who played with the likes of Stan Getz and Chet Baker.

He started his working life as a Stax session musician but was soon recruited Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett's band, where he, Clapton and the other members of Derek and the Dominos met. Other "major" artists he worked with include George Harrison and The Rolling Stones (uncredited on Exile on Main Street - my favourite Stone's album).

His most recent album was released in 1999 after over 20 years with very few recording credits to his name.

I'll list just his "solo" work (taken from All Music Guide):
