Hal Blaine Joins Elvis Week's Conversations on Elvis

Drummer and session musician Hal Blaine will share his Elvis memories at Conversations on Elvis during Elvis Week 2015.

Hal played on a number of Elvis tunes, especially on music for his movie soundtracks. He played on the soundtracks for "Girls! Girls! Girls" "Roustabout" and "Blue Hawaii," to name a few. He can also be spotted in Elvis' backing bands in some of those films.

Hal has played on 50 number one hits, over 150 top 10 hits and has recorded on more than 35,000 pieces of music in over 40 years of work. He's best known for his work with Wrecking Crew. He worked with artists such as Nancy Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, The Ronettes and many more. He also recorded on six consecutive Record of the Year Grammy Award winners. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Musicians Hall of Fame and Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame, Hal is widely regarded as one of the most prolific drummers in music history.

Hal will be joined at Conversations on Elvis by singer Brenda Lee and former Shelby County Sheriff Bill Morris, a close friend of Elvis'.
