OK. So.....

MANFRED MANN. Remember him?

Anyway...turns 77 today. Was YEARS before I discovered he was singing the word "Deuce" instead of "Douche" in "Blinded By The Light". grin

But that's because I never heard the Springsteen original until many a year later. wink

Elvin did a fine job filling in for Mike Bloomfield during their "Live Adventures" sessions too.

So, happy birthday to Elvin too.

Yep. And some here have indicated a liking for country artist/guitarist DWIGHT YOAKAM, who today is 71.

Have a good 'un Dwight. Good actor too.

DY is cool but as was often the case Pete Anderson (master guitarist & producer) upstages him, before even starting the tune, in this clip.
rawk
DY does dance well, though !
& dig Will Lee's bass parts !

And let's "give it up" for BILL WYMAN, founder and former bassist for The Rolling Stones who is 81 today!

He was the oldest and probably the more musically well rounded member of that band. Have a good 'un, Gramps! wink

He also did a great job of acting in the movie Sling Blade written, directed and starred in by Billy Bob Thornton. Dwight did such a great job, I really hated the character he played. He's a great country singer! cool

Well, yer right abt that (along w/ the less stable Brian Jones).
He also produced records for several other acts.

What's most interesting in one way is that Bill Perks (real name) was many years older than the others but remains the youngest looking of any of them, even Ron Wood, a decade his junior.

Have a funky one, "Bootsy".

YEOW!

Almost forgot to mention country guitar wizard BRAD PAISLEY's 45th birthday today!

But it's also my first daughter's birthday too, so you'll have to cut me some slack. Same date AND year. So they BOTH turn 45 today.

Today, it's LYLE LOVETT who turns 60. Funny, but I always figured he was older. I never knew who he was until a big deal was made over him and Julia Roberts getting married. Then after hearing some of his stuff I figured he was OK as a musician and much more than just another country dude.
