Amazing article in Rolling Stone a while back on this most excellent studio band that backed multitudes of hit singers back in the day.

Waddy Wachtel, Russell Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Craig Doerge and David Lindley backed James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Carole King and Manny Moore during their years as session musicians. They have a couple of discs as The Section, as well, I have one, Forward Motion.

Google 'Rolling Stone the Section' and be prepared to be knocked up. Err, out. Or, if you like, I have a copy that I Xeroxed from the mag you can have. 9 pages of debauchery!

My favorite story? Waddy was with JT as they were crossing a toll bridge. They came to the toll booth and the female attendant recognized JT and asked for an autograph. Waddy said JT scribbled something, and before he handed it back, Waddy read it. "You b!tch, I'll kill you." Signed, "James Taylor."
