- Yeah, exactly.

Well, that's how that whole

wrecking crew thing came in.

Even though the term

"The Wrecking Crew"

gained popularity

with rock historians,

many of these musicians

never heard the term

until years later.

I think Hal Blaine was

the first one I heard it from.

- Yeah, it...

- He probably

came up with the name.

I think it kind of evolved


- There was...

- The first time I heard

the name, I think

was at The Baked Potato,

where they had

that get-together.

They used the expression

"the wrecking crew."

Well, it was used before that.

It was used

while we were recording.

And the definition of who was

a member of The Wrecking Crew,

there really isn't

any definition.

Between the engineers, producers

and musicians themselves,

each has their own take

on how this all went down.

Together, they form

a snapshot of a time

that will never be repeated.

Anybody could do

five or six different things

on as many different

instruments also.

There were a lot of producers

at that time

that were not really musicians,

so these guys were able

to decode...

He's talking about me,

by the way, so...

No, I mean, there were

some producers

that really just, you know,

didn't really know

the musicians' language,

and these guys were able

to just quickly interpret it.

The people we're talking about

played for so many people

in so many different styles.

That's a fascinating thing.

They could walk into, uh,

a pop sound, and play it.

They could do rhythm and blues.

They could do soul music.

I guess they could have done

classics if they'd had to,

but they had the magic touch.

We injected

a lot of ourself into it,

because we were

experts at doing it.

We were doing it all the time.

A guy would give us

a lead sheet or something,
