Waddy Wachtel, a longtime sideman for Keith Richards, has opened up about his illustrious career in a new documentary titled King of the Sidemen. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Wachtel spoke specifically on his time with Richards' solo band the X-Pensive Winos.
"The level of musicianship in that band was really about as high as it gets," he reveals. "It was take one and we were all standing there going, 'Oh, my God, that was pretty amazing.' I don't even know if we really rehearsed."
Richards, who's featured in the rock doc, repayed the compliment to Wachtel:
"He is a natural maestro. He can take a song to further heights than you expected, beyond expectations. I envy him, quite honestly."
