You heard them playing on the Beach Boys hits, on the Mamas and the Papas' recordings, on Frank Sinatra records, on Monkees' singles and they were Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. Simply put, you heard them everywhere. They have performed on more number one singles than the Beatles. They were one of rock and roll's most legendary bands, a hit-making machine. Most likely, you never heard their name. If you knew who they were, you called them the Wrecking Crew.Hal Blaine, Carole Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Glen Campbell, Earl Palmer. These are a few members of the Wrecking Crew. Their story is remarkable. Tedesco's son, Denny Tedesco, knew it well enough to see that it had to be told to more than a small circle of friends. Just prior to his father's death, Denny Tedesco set out to film his father and other members of the Wrecking Crew to capture their story firsthand.The film features conversations with Brian Wilson, Cher, Nancy Sinatra, Mickey Dolenz, Herb Alpert, Lou Adler, Dick Clark, Jimmy Webb, Brian Wilson, Roger McGuinn and many others.
