Would it surprise you to know that session musicians, not just official band members, recorded the famous "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys or "California Dreamin'" by The Mamas & The Papas?
If not, then it's likely you know The Wrecking Crew were a motley group of musicians who helped create "west coast sound" of the 1960s and 70s. A new documentary by Denny Tedesco, son of late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, is an educational, entertaining and musically rich labor of love that promises to become a classic primer on this fantastic chapter of American music.
"The Wrecking Crew" opens in Los Angeles this Friday, March 13 at the Nuart Theatre.
