« on: March 15, 2019, 05:17:14 PM »

The drummer who was a member of, and coined the name, "the Wrecking Crew."

"Hal Blaine, the ubiquitous drummer whose work in the 1960s and 70s with Elvis Presley,
Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, the Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, the Ronettes and many
others established him as one of the top session musicians of all time, died on Monday at
his home in Palm Desert, Calif. He was 90."
