    Hal blaine the wrecking crew

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/...90/3136206002/


    I don't know how i missed this guy's obit but I did. He was a famous drummer for Phil Spector's Wrecking Crew. (just because Spector is a shit does not mean the people who worked for him were). Some estimated that he played on so many songs, he is probably the most recorded drummer in history. He made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    My favorite piece of Hal Blaine trivia is that he played on SIX CONSECUTIVE Grammy winners for Record of the Year.

    RIP

    I had seen The Wrecking Crew documentary, these guys were incredible. Hal was the best in the business. Having his name on a Vegas marquee alongside Nancy Sinatra proved how valuable he was to those people. RIP Sir.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.
