Thursday Music: The Immediate Family: Cruel Twist

The Immediate Family!

Their names are familiar to anyone who grew up on SoCal rock. In various combinations, guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Waddy Wachtel, bassist Leland Sklar, and drummer Russ Kunkel contributed to countless albums by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, and Don Henley, among many others.

What they’ve never done is make a record on their own, but after nearly 50 years of playing together, these veterans have finally done just that. Calling themselves the Immediate Family, a nod to their connections to classic-rock all-stars, the band  — which also includes singer, guitarist, and fellow Los Angeles resident Steve Postell — has recently toured and released music in Japan.

OK Boomer…!!
