The Wrecking Crew Film Tells Story Behind Huge String of 60s Hits

The Wrecking Crew was the name given to a group of session musicians in Los Angeles in the 60s who played on hundreds and hundreds of songs (Mr. Tambourine Man by the Byrds is one of the most famous, and they were on loads of Beach Boys tunes too) but never got credit by any of the artists.

Now there is a film that tells the whole story. Trouble is, it's not being released broadly yet as the producers need to raise funds to secure the proper rights for broad distribution. In the meantime, check out the trailer below. This film looks awesome!

Hey Dan - you don't like auto-Paul Stanley? JK, I agree that it's annoying. Basically I have to post a few more items so his post gets pushed off the home page. For whatever reason that clip is set to start automatically and you have to pause it to make it stop. Apologies!
