Jeff Golub was an American guitarist who was as adept at jazz as he was at rock and the blues.  During a career that spanned more than 30 years, Golub released over a dozen contemporary jazz albums while earning a reputation as one of rock music’s most in-demand session players.  He is perhaps best remembered for his years playing on records by and touring with both Billy Squier and David Bowie.  The list of artists on whose albums Golub performed also includes John Waite, Dave Koz, Kirk Whalum, Joe Lynn Turner, and Tina Turner. In November of 2014, Golub learned that he was suffering from progressive supranuclear palsy which ultimately took his life on January 1, 2015.  He was 59.
