Beach Boys, Neil Diamond session drummer passes away

Drummer Hal Blaine, who helped dozens of major hit records during the ‘60s and ‘70s as a member of the “Wrecking Crew,” died Monday, according to a statement from family members on his official Facebook page. He was 90 years old.

The Wrecking Crew was Hollywood’s elite, first-call studio musicians that helped make music for some of the greatest artists of a generation. He was featured on the majority of Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” productions, including the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby,” and also appeared on many of the Beach Boys’ best-known records including the classic 1966 album “Pet Sounds” and the single from that same year, “Good Vibrations.”

Blaine appeared on more than 35,000 recordings, including some 6,000 singles.
