    I started a Player Index, like the coverindex. Besides of reading their names frequently on album, why not putting a pictures of them on the site? Behind every picture I linked them to the posted albums they played on or I linked them to the discography. It’s a start of the top 20 and it will increase rapidly during the weeks.
