From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lewie Steinberg (b. September 13, 1933) was born in Memphis, is an American musician best known as the original bass guitar player for soul music group Booker T. & the M.G.'s.

Steinberg was in the group from 1962 to 1964. He is featured on hits including "Green Onions" backed with "Behave Yourself."

Steinberg recorded one more album with the band, Soul Dressing in 1965. Unlike the Green Onions album, every song but one on Soul Dressing was an original. But the chemistry — musically and personally — wasn't quite right. Steinberg stepped aside, and Donald "Duck" Dunn took over on bass for the band.

Steinberg was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2007 received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Steinberg currently resides in Memphis, Tennessee. [1]
