PlanetZaya Filming with Musician Caleb Quaye

Elton John & Caleb Quaye

I received a call from cinematographer Jonathan Pascual from PlanetZaya about filming a musician in the Loft. He and his crew, including Emmy Award winning producer, Valerie Tucker rolled through for a two camera shoot. They even brought a jib.

They brought Caleb Quaye, his Stratocaster and a small Marshall amp. Caleb has a worldwide reputation as a signature lead guitar player since the late 60’s and early 70’s. He is known most notably as Elton John’s original lead guitarist having played on all the “early stuff”, as well as numerous studio sessions for many other name artists, such as Harry Nilsson, Beach Boys, Mick JaggerJoan Baez, Al Kooper, David Foster, John Klemmer, Eddie HendersonDusty Springfield, Liza Minnelli, Brenda Russell, Ralph McTell, Pete Townsend, The Troggs, Hall & Oates.

Caleb is working on a documentary project to coincide with his recent book, telling his story and the history made throughout the years working with music legends.

Here’s the trailer:
