From Denny Tedesco, September 22nd, 2016:

Hello Wrecking Crew Friends, family and fans.

It's been some time since we sent out an announcement. As many of you remember, I don't like to send out information unless I have an out-take or two that I'd like to share.

It's been over a year and a half since the film was released. The film did extremely well because of all of you that spread the word. It has become one of the top picks on Netflix (for those who are subscribers) and I'm thrilled with the response to the DVD/Blu-ray. The 6 hours of bonus footage was worth the struggle.

Now I'm trying to cut footage of material that never made it onto the DVD. Here is one that I enjoyed putting together from the Micky Dolenz interview. Micky was a straight shooter. It was so much fun to listen to some of the Monkees tracks during this cut. Another reason that I'm sharing this is to let you know what and where the musicians and artists are playing. If you get a chance to see Micky with the Monkees or as a solo act, don't miss it.



Saturday, 10/8/16 - Aurora, IL, Aurora University
Friday, 11/18/16 - St. Charles, IL, Arcada Theater (A Wrecking Crew venue and sponsor)

Beautifully said, Randy.
I wonder if there were any wrecking crew members or session musicians at any time during those hardworking, groundbreaking years who didn't cut it?
Maybe they couldn't keep up with the grueling hours, the late nights, little time for family life, working creatively in a pressure cooker?

Have heard Glen say in many interviews, no he was never nervous because he was so confident in his ability. The wrecking crew days , in my opinion is what formed that ability into the ultimate professionalism he always showed. Not only Glen but all of them. Also ingrained a tremendous work ethic.

That's right Tim. Glen's history as a session musician is pretty amazing. In fact it's one of the topics that people have been discussing on the former forum and now on Glen Campbell Forums.
Here's the link to that topic.

Wow. What an amazing show (The Wrecking Crew documentary). I had no idea of Glen's past as a session musician. He was and is amazing.
