The Wrecking Crew Inducted Into Rockwalk

The members of session music supergroup THE WRECKING CREW were honoured in Los Angeles on Wednesday (25Jun08) when studio stars GLEN CAMPBELL, HAL BLAINE and DON RANDI sank their hands in concrete at Hollywood's RockWalk.
The trio were part of the group that played behind the likes of Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas and The Monkees on hundreds of smash hits.
The Wrecking Crew were also largely responsible for giving music mogul Phil Spector his fabled Wall of Sound.
Drummer Hal Blaine told those gathered for the RockWalk induction that he had played with "the greatest musicians in the world" as a member of the session group.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member performed on hits like Strangers in the Night and Good Vibrations as a member of The Wrecking Crew.
Meanwhile, country icon Campbell admitted he still regrets the day he left The Wrecking Crew to embark on a solo career.
He said, "I wanted to stay and play with the musicians. It was what I really enjoyed doing, more so than singing."
