Session drummer Hal Blaine, a member of the revered Wrecking Crew studio group and contributor to dozens of world-renowned rock songs, died at the age of 90 on March 11, his family announced.

Blaine is said to have appeared on over 6000 singles and more than 30,000 other recordings during his career, which began in the ‘40s and continued until his passing. He can be heard on the Beach Boys’ “I Get Around,” the Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man,” Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” Neil Diamond’s “Cracklin’ Rose” and many others. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award last year.
