Remembering 2000 Inductee Hal Blaine (1929-2019)
The godfather of rock drumming and the foundation of the Wrecking Crew, Hall of Fame Inductee Hal Blaine’s beat resonates through all of us on recordings by Elvis, Sam Cooke, The Beach Boys, The Ronettes, Simon & Garfunkel and thousands more. Thank you, Hal, for anchoring so many of our favorite songs.
