Guitarist and singer/songwriter Shuggie Otis played bass on Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'.

November 2012, Shuggie is starting a world tour with his Shuggie Otis Rite, featuring Larry Douglas, Michael Turre, Nick Smith, Alex Al, Cory Mason, and Albert Wing !!

November 24, 2012, they'll be playing at the La Bellevoise in Paris, France
November 27, 2012, they'll be at the Gruenspan in Hamburg, Germany

Here's Shuggie Otis with 'Strawberry Letter 23", from 1971. It's said to be in the top twenty of the most sampled tracks in music history.
Big hit for the funky Brothers Johnson...
And then there's also the sterile Akon version with Quincy Jones...
