Stoner is an accomplished session musician (his credits range from backing Don McLean's "American Pie" to serving as musical director for Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue)...

Shepard, Sam: Rolling Thunder Logbook:
Machine-gun bass. Like a gangster Gene Vincent. The brains behind the operation. The get-it-together man. Responsible for at least one great song ("Wasted"). Grafted harmonies onto Dylan like a Siamese twin.
