Look up The Ventures playing wipeout. Their drummer just use a thin ride cymbal that he also crashed on.
The days of Watts and Starr? Ringo actually used 2 crashes during the last few years of the Beatles..Those guys are still on the planet,and are still playing.They have however expanded their kits to use more cymbals.
