Waddy Wachtel : King of the Sidemen
Waddy Wachtel may be the greatest session guitarist of all time, with a resumé including classic work from the Everly Brothers, Warren Zevon (he co-wrote "Werewolves of London"), Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks.
Now Wachtel is stepping out of the shadows in the career-spanning documentary King of the Sidemen, directed by friend Gary Simson, with guest appearances from friends including Nicks, Browne and Keith Richards. "He is a natural maestro..." says Richards, who played with Wachtel in the X-Pensive Winos. MORE HERE
