One of the peripheral figures in rock’n’roll, Dee Clark nevertheless had five Top 40 hits hits between 1959 and 1961 (perhaps the most memorable being “Just Keep It Up”) before finally hitting it big in June 1961, with “Raindrops,” which went to number two (only to be edged out from the top slot by Gary U.S. Bonds’ “Quarter To Three”). Dee died in 1990 of a heart attack, but he leaves behind this soulful and memorable ballad.

Quality Transcriptions You Can Count On
All the drum sheet music found on this page and throughout the site are full, note-for-note transcriptions transcribed by James Morton--long-time professional drummer, author of over a dozen books with Mel Bay Publications, and creator of the "Rock Charts" column formerly found in Modern Drummer--over the course of his 40+ year career.
I have been using the Classic Rock Drum Charts collection for many years. There is nothing better to practice and rehearse to, than these charts transcribed by James Morton.Michael Sheahan
