They were the studio musicians behind some of the biggest hits in the 1960s and ‘70s. From “Be My Baby” to “California Girls;” “Strangers in the Night” to “Mrs. Robinson,” the group dubbed The Wrecking Crew played on them all. Discover the musicians who gave a unique signature to recordings that are now part of the soundtrack of our lives.
“The Wrecking Crew,” an award-winning documentary about some of the most influential musicians of the 1960s and 1970s. The film looks back on a group of Los Angeles studio musicians who performed with The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, and Simon and Garfunkel, and played a role on the Grammy-winning Record of the Year for six consecutive years.
“If the history of rock music means anything to you, you know the individuals in question could only be the Wrecking Crew,” said Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan. “Seeing this film makes it clear what its members accomplished in their prime.” Denny Tedesco, son of Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, began production on the documentary in 1996. Tedesco spent years interviewing musicians, sound engineers and producers associated with the Wrecking Crew.
