          LOL!



          Hal Blaine would be the high percentage guess...he played on everything. Hell, I used to find him playing my drums in my basement!!! Had to throw him out of the house...he was everywhere!!!!!



          Another great rockin Halloween tune is the theme from the Munsters TV show. Kind of that 1960's beach music sound, awesome guitar lead, big horn blasts....that song rocks hard.
          OS is kind of like imaginary numbers-- something theoretically useful, but who doesn't acually exist.

          Only in OS's case, instead of generating recursive fractals, it's simply that the mass of **************** which fills him is greater than the mass of a similar, hypothetical mass of **************** at 0 degrees Kelvin.

          I call this phenominon "dark ****************," and while it is useful to explain OS, dark **************** violates a number of laws we know about matter.

              Just to show you how braindead I am, I saw this post and immediately thought the same thing I thought a year ago...."How about the Theme to the Munsters...great tune!"



              If I were retarded, would you guys tell me, or would you just be nice to me and let me think I'm normal? Just wondering.

                  Thanks, I'm very relieved. My drool bucket and and the fact that I'm required to wear a helmet everywhere you go had me wondering.

                    I'm shocked that a thread from a year ago is still "active"!

                      Some band called the ventures, who recorded the music to Hawaii Five-O. It would seem their drummer was the man on monster mash.



                      http://www.theventures.com/links/facts.htm







                      "Drummer Mel Taylor believed that he was the first drummer ever to play bluegrass music. He also played the Hollywood Bowl the first time Country music was played there. He did session work with Gary Paxton(Alley Oop, Cherry Pie, Monster Mash, etc.), Herb Alpert, Buck Owens and others before joining the Ventures."
