Hal Blaine (Harold Simon Belsky) (February 5, 1929 – March 11, 2019) 

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.

On this day in 1770, a deadly riot called "The Boston Massacre" took place on King Street in Boston. It began as a street brawl between
American colonists and a lone British soldier, but quickly escalated
to a chaotic, bloody slaughter killing five people. Two British troops 
were later convicted of manslaughter. The conflict energized anti-
Britain sentiment and paved the way for the American Revolution.

On this day in 1963, country music performers Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins died in the crash of their plane, a
Piper Comanche, near Camden, Tennessee, along with pilot Randy Hughes (Cline’s manager). The investigation determined that Hughes,
a non-instrument-rated pilot, attempted visual flight in adverse
weather conditions, resulting in disorientation and subsequent loss
of control.

At 12:18 p.m. et, a terrorist bomb exploded in a parking garage of the World
Trade Center
in New York City, leaving a crater 60 feet wide and causing the collapse of several steel-reinforced concrete floors in the vicinity of the blast. Although the terrorist bomb failed to critically damage the main structure of
the skyscrapers, six people were killed, more than 1,000 were injured and
the World Trade Center itself suffered more than $500 million in damage. 

After the attack, authorities evacuated 50,000 people from the buildings,
hundreds of whom were suffering from smoke inhalation. The evacuation
lasted the whole afternoon.

City authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation undertook a massive manhunt for suspects, and within days several radical Islamic fundamentalists
were arrested.
