R.I.P. Hal Blaine


Hal Blaine (Harold Simon Belsky) R.I.P. at 90.

As a member of the Wrecking Crew, his drumming is heard on hundreds if not thousands of hits from the 60s. His biography on WIKI says that he played on more than 35,000 songs, including over 6,000 singles.

He was the drummer on the first Byrds single "Mr. Tambourine Man" / "I Knew I'd Want You".

He also plays, uncredited, on two tracks from The Notorious Byrd Brothers album, as well as on some tracks from Roger McGuinn's post-Byrds solo albums.
