Hal Blaine as you all know was one of the very best studio session drummers ever. Hal had played on literally thousands of songs, I have picked ten number 1 songles that Hal played drums on here they are.
I get around by The Beach Boys
I got you Babe Sonny and Cher
Mr Tamborine Man The Byrds
Good Vibrations The Beach Boys
Monday Monday The Mamas and the Papas
Strangers in the Night Frank Sinatra
These boots are made for walking Nancy Sinatra
Mrs Robinson Simon and Garfunkel
Close to you The Carpenters
Cracklin Rosie Neil Diamond
These are just ten of the number 1 singles that Hal Blaine played drums on. Hal recieved 363 different disks in his lifetime of playing many were Gold some were Silver. Hal joked that if he started to clean a disk a day from January 1st he could have Xmas day and Boxing day off. Hope this gives you an idea of how good this man was as a studio session drummer.
