The amount of popular music Hal Blaine played on is just staggering. Simply turning on a radio, you still hear him everywhere today and likely will for eons to come.
R.I.P. to the Big Beat...What a legacy.

Blaine told a magazine that Bruce Gary, who played drums in the Knack, was once asked who his favorite drummer was.

“He was never so disappointed in his life to find out that a dozen of his favorite drummers were me.”
