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.

Thomas Edison gave his first public demonstration of incandescent lighting to an audience in Menlo Park, NJ. on this day in 1879.

The Pennsylvania Railroad Company ran special trains to Menlo Park on the
day of the demonstration in response to public enthusiasm over the event.

Although the first incandescent lamp had been produced 40 years earlier, no inventor had been able to come up with a practical design until Edison, after
countless tests, developed a high-resistance carbon-thread filament that
burned steadily for hours and an electric generator sophisticated enough to
power a large
lighting system.

Thomas Edison’s greatest contribution to the modern industrial world came
from his work in electricity. He acquired 1,093 patents in his lifetime and
died in 1931 at the age of 84.
