RIP Hal Blaine, most recorded musician of all time


(New Haven, CT, USA) #1

The greatest session drummer of all time. I first heard of Hal Blaine while reading an excerpt of one of Rush drummer Neil Peart’s books, where he describes moving into a recording studio and seeing where Blaine carved his name into the wall behind where the drum kit gets setup, and how he was floored by being in the same studio as Blaine.

The man played drums on 40 #1 hits. LEGEND
