Friend and sometime musical collaborator with the late singer-songwriter Warren Zevon. Zevon's song "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead" (mid 1990s) refers to seeing "Waddy in the Rattlesnake Cafe / Dressed in black, tossin' back a shot of rye / Finding things to do in Denver when you die.".


" In 1980 Waddy formed the band Ronin; the group's self-titled debut album alas turned out to be a commercial flop. Among the artists he has toured with are Stevie Nicks (he has often worked with Nicks as a guitarist, band leader, and musical director, plus has been featured on all of her solo albums), Cher, James Taylor, the Everly Brothers, and Adam Sandler.


Wachtel got his first major album credit on the 1972 Everly Brothers album "Stories We Could Tell" and subsequently went on tour with the famous duo. Waddy soon amassed a huge list of credits as a session guitarist, composer and producer who's contributed to hundreds of albums and singles; among the many folks he's worked with are Bob Dylan, Randy Newman, Bonnie Raitt, Kim Carnes, Maria Muldaur, the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, Carly Simon, Bryan Ferry, Tom Waits, Jackson Browne (he does the fiery guitar solo on Browne's big hit song "Running On Empty"), Bog Seger, Iggy Pop, James Taylor, Don Henley, Cher, John Prine, J. D. Souther, Melissa Etheridge, Rosanne Cash, Joe Walsh, Adam Sandler, and Linda Ronstadt (he appears on stage with Ronstadt performing the Warren Zevon song "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me" in the comedy film "FM"). Wachtel is perhaps best known for his collaborations with Zevon; he co-produced Zevon's first two albums and even co-wrote Zevon's hit song "Werewolves of London.


In 1970 Waddy moved to Los Angeles, California to work as a composer and producer for the Cowsills. He got his first big break in the music business when he was hired by singer/songwriter Warren Zevon to be a guitarist in the backing band for the Everly Brothers.
