That's cool mrxyz, as long as putting a metal bucket over your head and hitting it with a hammer isn't your percussion "instrument" of choice...LOL!!!!

am not defending.. I am pointing things out.. Hal was far more than just a "DRUMMER" He should taken his production points on much of his stuff but he did not..He took cash outs...

mrxyz, you're darn right the Shirelles are awesome. Great harmonies, the way they rotated lead vocal duties, and all of them sounded beautiful. They just never got the same amount of HOLLYWOOD HYPE as some other girl groups because of two things they DIDN'T have: Phil Spector or Berry Gordy. In that respect, it's amazing they got in at all.

Hal Blaine drummed for many, but the guy you need to know about was known as the late "Sticks Seven."
