LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drummer Hal Blaine, who played on many of the
biggest hits in music history, has died.

Blaine’s son-in-law Andy Johnson tells The Associated Press that Blaine
died of natural causes Monday at his home in Palm Desert, California.

The session drummer was a virtual one-man soundtrack of the 1960s and
’70s who played on songs featuring Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys and
thousands of others. He laid down one of the most memorable opening
riffs of all time on the Ronettes’ "Be My Baby."

Few outside the music industry knew his name, but just about anyone
with a turntable, radio or TV heard his drumming.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, and won a
Grammy Lifetime Achievement award last year.
