Denny Tedesco Directs Music Documentary 'The Wrecking Crew'

They were like the ultimate supergroup that you never heard of. They were an elite bunch of studio musicians, who provided the sounds that led to hit records for the Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, Simon and Garfunkle and dozens of others. They became known as The Wrecking Crew.

'The Wrecking Crew' is now a film that tells the story of the legendary, unsung LA musicians that provided the backbeat to the soundtrack of the 60s and 70s. 

The documentary film is produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco.
