So far so good. Ken recommended this book, he liked it a lot. Ken is drummer and so is Hal Blaine.

Matter of fact, Hal Blaine was one of the top studio drummers ever. The list of gold records that he recorded on is very impressive. The book is ok, a little bland. He comes across as a nice guy, just very involved with music.

With all due respect for legendary drummer Hal Blaine, the publisher tried to save money by actually pasting corrections, in the form of strips of paper, over the misspelled or nonfactual lines and passages throughout the book. The info is great but the serial killer, ransom note-like paste fest was annoying.
