"The Wrecking Crew" Film Shown At SXSW
MSNBC "'The Wrecking Crew' looks at the session musicians behind some of the ’60s biggest hits by bands such as The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Nancy Sinatra and The Righteous Brothers. Unbelievably, the same set of musicians played on almost every record. They included Tommy Tedesco, Hal Blaine, Carol Kaye and even Glen Campbell. Brian Wilson talks about their invaluable contributions to the seminal 'Pet Sounds' and Mickey Dolenz explains how they stood in for The Monkees. They were also Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound crew. The documentary explores a subculture you may have never realized existed. Carol Kaye’s story as one of the only female rock ’n’ roll session players is one of the most compelling — the woman deserves her own film."
