EARL PALMER, R.I.P.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Leading R&B drummer Earl Palmer, best known for his New Orleans recording sessions with the likes of Fats Domino and Little Richard, died on Friday at his home in Los Angeles at age 84, his family said.
I saw the man play on more than one occasion. I saw him as recently as 2005 and he still had it.
You have all heard Earl Palmer play. Do you have any records by any of the following?
The Beach Boys
The Everly Brothers
Screamin' Jay Hawkins
The Mamas & the Papas
The Righteous Brothers
Huey "Piano" Smith
Tongue & Groove
Big Joe Turner
Well then, you've heard him play.
A huge loss.
