"I remember attending a King concert at Pauley Pavilion after the release of Wrap Around Joy - she let Waddy Wachtel handle every solo..."
- Phil Gallo Daily Variety Source

”Following his Everly Brothers days, Waddy spent some time forming a band with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and singer Stevie Nicks, currently with Fleetwood Mac, but clashing musical sensibilities left him dissatisfied. He decided to hit the road with singer Carole King in the fall of 1974, and was asked to play on her Thoroughbred album; subsequently his name began to circulate around Los Angeles.”
