HAL BLAINE - OBIT

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Hal Blaine, the Hall of Fame session drummer who played on the songs of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and the Beach Boys and laid down one of music's most memorable opening riffs on the Ronettes' "Be My Baby," has died. He died of natural causes at his home in Palm Desert, California. He was 90. On hearing of his death, the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson called him "the greatest drummer ever." The winner of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award last year, Blaine's name was known by few outside the music industry, even in his prime. But just about anyone with a turntable, radio or T-V heard his drumming on songs that included Presley's "Return to Sender," the Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man," Barbra Streisand's "The Way We Were," the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations," dozens of hits produced by Phil Spector, and the theme songs to "Batman," ''The Partridge Family" and dozens of other shows."
