Denny Tedesco

Denny Tedesco (The Wrecking Crew) stops by Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about his 19 year labor of love, the documentary The Wrecking Crew and what it was like growing up the son of famed musician Tommy Tedesco. We also talked about his experience interviewing luminaries like Cher, Dick Clark, Nancy Sinatra, Brian Wilson and more plus crowdfunding, losing his father to cancer, “no smoking, no Tedesco,” controversy with Carol Kaye, conflict between Carol Kaye and Hal Blaine, growing up in the valley and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs from this episode).

    Alison, that was a great interview with Denny. It was refreshing that you had actually seen The Wrecking Crew documentary before the interview (seemingly not always the case) and that you were genuinely interested in not only the Wrecking Crew but Denny's personal story in getting the movie completed/distributed. Well done.

    For posterity's sake (I'm never sure if it's best to post on Facebook, here or both…), I want to note that this was an excellent interview. I didn't know anything about The Wrecking Crew, but I'm now very interested in watching the documentary. The stories that Denny told were fascinating and some were also moving.
    As far as Alison's interviewing prowess, it was on fine display here. She had clearly done her research, including watching the documentary. I love it when guests tell her that she's asked them a question that they hadn't been asked before. It happens pretty regularly and it happened in this interview again.
