The Wrecking Crew

The Wrecking Crew, with guitarists Glen Campbell and Tommy Tedesco, drummers Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer, Carol Kaye and Leland Sklar on bass, and keyboard players Larry Knechtel, Don Randi and Leon Rusell, among others.

These folks did it all -- the Beach Boys, Phil Spector, The Byrds, The Association, Tina Turner, The Grassroots, Bread, Simon and Garfunkel, Sonny and Cher, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Jan & Dean, The Monkees, America, The Righteous Brothers, Neil Diamond, Herb Alpert, The Mamas & the Papas, the Carpenters', The Fifth Dimension, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra.... and the list goes on.

If you were listening to music in the 1960s and early 1970s, you were listening to The Wrecking Crew.
And yes, Leland Sklar was also part of The Section. The man is a God.
