Hal Blaine, Wrecking Crew Drummer and Rock Hall of Fame Member, Dies at 90
If I sifted through my record collection, and counted the number of tunes that Blaine drummed on (along with Larry Knechtel on keyboards, Tommy Tedesco on guitar and Carol Kaye on bass), I would lose count very quickly.

It is inevitable that we will lose these wonderful musicians due to age alone.
The reality of the finality still hurts.
