The house band, known collectively as The Wrecking Crew, was under the musical direction of Jack Nitzsche and included drummer Hal Blaine, electric bass player Jimmy Bond, guitarists Tommy Tedesco, Bill Aken, and Glen Campbell, upright bassist Lyle Ritz, and pianist Leon Russell, saxophonist Plas Johnson and others.
Such well groomed, clean cut boys.
Shut Down, Dead Man’s Curve, The Little Old Lady from Pasadina, Little GTO, She’s Real Fine My 409, I Get Around….Great driving music from a Fun, Fun, Fun time!
Was never a big BB fan until I saw “Love and Mercy”. Then I started looking deeper and developed a new appreciation for Brian Wilson, Mike Love and the group.
Help me Rhonda, yeah…..
When America was Great!
