Earl Cyril Palmer (October 25, 1924 – September 19, 2008) was an American rock and roll and rhythm-and-blues drummer. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Palmer played on many recordings, including Little Richard's first few albums and many other well-known rock and roll records.
Originally called "Percolator," the title was slightly modified by the producer to tie in with the Twist craze, indicating that this was a record for dancing the twist, even though it was not at all danceable and had nothing to do with The Twist. An instrumental running 2:09, this song was often used by disc jockeys as a bed to provide background music over spoken segments like weather reports and call-ins. Joining Ernie and Wechter in the studio was master guitarist René Hall, Red Callender on bass and Earl Palmer on drums. Wechter later went on to form the Baja Marimba Band. The 'Billy Joe' billed on the Dore record label was a pseudonym for Lew Bedell, the label's owner. Bedell had no involvement in the recording of "Percolator".
Dapper and outspoken, Earl Palmer may well have been the most recorded drummer in the history of popular music. He stamped his sound on everything from early Fats Domino and Little Richard hits to classic movie soundtracks to music for The Flintstones cartoon. Palmer recorded with Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Sam Cooke, Glen Campbell, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, the Everly Brothers, the Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, Sonny & Cher, the Supremes and the Monkees, among many others. Palmer frequented the Dew Drop Inn and other fabled nightclubs. Backbeat: Earl Palmer's Story, Tony Scherman's 1999 oral history-style biography, is rich with colorful tales of New Orleans nightlife and Mr. Palmer's adventures, romantic and otherwise.
