I just got home from seeing the Wrecking Crew documentary. It was great.

It's only showing four times in Vancouver (one time left, at 4pm on
Thursday). I imagine that's typical of other cities. Better find out in
advance so you won't miss it. There's a list of screenings at
<http://wreckingcrew.tv/screenings.php>.

No one ever mentions FZ, but there is a brief interview clip wherein he
talks about Tommy Tedesco's appearance on the Gong Show.

I just finished reading Tommy Tedesco's autobiography, "Confessions Of a guitar Player", and he described the record date that he did with FZ as the most difficult sight reading experience he ever had in the studios.

There's a photo or two of FZ in there, also.
He seemed to be pretty good friends with FZ.
