The Wrecking Crew
In the 1960s artists like the Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas and more were topping the charts and becoming household names, but the behind-the-scenes studio musicians, known as the Wrecking Crew, who actually recorded these hits were virtually unknown. Now, with Denny Tedesco’s powerful documentary, the phenomenal session musicians of the 1960s rock ’n’roll era and the “West Coast Sound” are finally given center stage. The film is being shown, at 5 p.m. June 17, at the Grand Annex in San Pedro. Tickets start at $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Click here to read B. Noel Barr, the Music writer dude, had to say about it.
