Hugh McDonald (born December 28, 1950, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a session musician and bassist. He has played with many artists both live and in the studio, and has recorded with Willie Nelson, Richie Sambora, Steve Goodman, Ringo Starr, Bon Jovi, Lita Ford, Michael Bolton, Cher, Alice Cooper, Jon Bon Jovi, Ricky Martin, and others.

He is currently working with Bon Jovi and has been doing so since Alec John Such's departure after 'Cross Road' was released in 1994, but is still regarded as an 'unofficial' member of Bon Jovi. Although he records with the band in studio and performs live on stage and during publicity performances, McDonald is left out of publicity shoots and album covers. Band members say they agreed never to officially replace former bass player Alec John Such. He has appeared on Bon Jovi singer Jon Bon Jovi's solo album "Destination Anywhere", and recorded on one of Bon Jovi's original demos, Runaway.

His childhood inspiration was Paul McCartney.Fact|date=September 2008
