Happy birthday Meat Loaf. Saw a couple of his shows on tv not really a fan but he did seem to put out a lot of energy for the crowd.

Belated happy birthday for Springsteen. Like some of his songs just never follow his career. Jim

There, SEE? Goes back to that old saying.....

"You can please SOME of the people ALL of the time; And please ALL of the people SOME of the time; But you can't please ALL of the people ALL of the time!" smile

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE!

The "Killer" is 82 today!

Some probably are starting with jokes about that "whole Lotta Shakin' goin' On" being a palsy shake. But God bless 'im he made it this far when too many others much younger have sadly gone.

I never knew his b'day was the 29th. And so is my brother's. He'd have probably got a kick out of it as he WAS a fan of Jerry Lee's music. wink

And in a big switch of musical gears, TODAY Johnny Mathis is 82!

Always did kind of like a lot of his tunes as well. So, I guess I'll go the corny route and say...

Have a wonderful, wonderful birthday, Johnny! crazy

And today is singer/songwriter(and guitar player...happy?) DON McLEAN'S 72nd birthday.

Wowed us with '71's "mini-history" of rock'n'roll "American Pie".

Remember debating the song's referrences and meaning with everyone? wink

Did a lot of very good songs, but still my personal favorite of mine is his '72 release, "Dreidel". Love the vibe and particularily it's lyrics:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DON McCLEAN! The song I most admire by him is Vincent (better known as Starry Starry Night). His writing reminded me so much of Donovan's, that I thought Donovan wrote it for him LOL! A great historical account inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's painting... cool

Yeah, "Vincent" is a very good tune.

But my favorite song concerning Vincent Van Gogh is still Joni Mitchell's "Turbulent Indigo". wink

A lot of her stuff has that vibe. wink

And with that, I'll mention today, as we mourn Tom Petty, it's the 76th birthday of Chubby Checker( real name Ernest Evans) who it seems, got his stage name from Dick Clark's wife. Reported she asked his name, and he told her "Folks call me "Chubby". And as he reportedly just finished doing a Fats Domino imersonation, she picked up the "game" theme and asked, "Like in checkers?" And so was born the stage name "Chubby Checker".

Surprising to find out his big hit "The Twist" was recorded when he was just 19 and was still that age when it hit #1. And that he was a schoolmate of singer Fabian Forte, known mostly as "pop" idol FABIAN. Checker's stock in trade at the time was his ability to imitate popular singers of the day and made a living at it until covering Hank Ballard's "The Twist".

I kinda thought he was older and was surprised to learn he was "only" 76. So was my wife, to learn SHE is actually about a week older than him! shocked

Is there like a moratorium on gtr players here ?

This cat not only plays this way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sQ7cuYgjzw


He plays this way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYAoJ2QfKE0


He explains it this way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBSWt0b4K8E


& he does much of it on a gtr he helped design
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOfS-u9oLQE


But back to twisting (in the wind) w/Chumpy Checker....

OK now.

So we have JOHN MELLENCAMP turning 66 today. Awwww.....

I still remember when he was JOHNNY COUGAR and my kid sister was so sweet on him! grin

He did OK though. Still had one of the lines I like in a song...."Life goes on long after the thrill of living is gone."

How about that JACKSON BROWNE?

69 today and probably still looks in his 40's.

Been liking his stuff since "Doctor My Eyes". Anybody the Eagles once claimed to be "An old drinkin' buddy" is OK by me. wink

DARYL HALL today turns 71. The more vocal half of Hall&Oates, he, and them both, were laden with that dumb "Blue eyed soul" label.

Never a big fan myself, I only heard them do "Soul" . wink

And although I claim not being a "big" fan, I'll always love:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARYL HALL! My Wife and I Saw Hall and Oates live in San Francisco a few decades ago. What a great show that will stay in my memory forever! They did so many hits, we had forgot how many they had recorded as they played them again for us! Super cool! cool cool

Man, I messed up and forgot to get here and wish PAUL SIMON a happy yesterday! blush

76 and sounding like he's still got a lot to say. Him and Art and him alone gave my ears a lot of pleasure over the years. wink
