Hal Blaine (born Harold Simon Belsky; February 5, 1929 – March 11, 2019) was an American drummer and session musician. Blaine was one of the most recorded studio drummers in the history of the music industry, claiming over 35,000 sessions, and 6,000 singles, whose drumming is featured on 40 number 1 hits by a range of popular artists from the Byrds to Frank Sinatra, as well as on film and television soundtracks. Born in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Blaine moved with his family to California in 1943. He began playing jazz and big band music before taking up session work, specialising in rock 'n' roll.

He became one of the key players in Phil Spector's de facto house band, later known as "The Wrecking Crew", after Blaine's 1990 memoirs of the group. His opening drum shots on the the Ronettes' single "Be My Baby" (1963) made the song instantly recognizable, and his defining work on it won him many accolades. His signature hit singles include the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations, Simon and Garfunkel's Mrs. Robinson, and The Byrds' Mr. Tambourine Man.

The Beatles started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Eight Days A Week', the group's 7th US No.1. Paul McCartney would later say the name of the song came from a chauffeur who drove him one day. 'I said, 'How've you been?' 'Oh working hard,' he said, 'Working eight days a week.'
