Well, while not really fitting for a GUITAR FORUM, this holiday season, I don't care HOW young or "hip" you claim to be, but many of us CAN'T go rockin' around the Christmas tree without hearing BRENDA LEE sing it. grin And she's 73 today. wink And incidentally, she was born Brenda Mae Tarpley.

And also not a guitar player but a favorite of mine, McCOY TYNER, jazz pianist supreme is 79. wink

Good pick. But for a very few tunes I wasn't much taken with the 5. And that was one of them. smile

Here's another:

All I got today is England's oldest rock'n'roll "star" TOMMY STEELE turning 81 this morning. He too, recorded a version of "Singing The Blues" shortly after MARTY ROBBINS in '56.

We've discussed that tune before, but mostly the "whitebread" job GUY MITCHELL did to it. But for a long time( too long I'd say) Mitchel's version was the only one I was familiar with.

Steele's and Mitchell's came out close to the same time, but in two different countries. Steele's version too, was a big hit for him....But still falls short of Marty's.

+1 On Marty's original...but I like the way the Kentucky Headhunters put some harmony to it in this version:



Cool tune! Reminds me of Loggins and Messina cool

Monday, December 18th marks the 74th birthday of Rolling Stones guitarist/songwriter Keith Richards. Seriously, who would have ever bet with their own money that Keith would still be around? By the way, if any of you have not read Keith's autobiography "Life", you need to.

Thanks Sharkman! I'm not staying up till midnight tonight so I'll just say a day early:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO KEITH RICHARDS! The Rolling Stones are one of my all-time favorite bands. Keith Richards has always been a major inspiration to all of us old rock and rollers who love the Stones! like

"Mr. Telecaster" ALBERT LEE is 74 today! He's been brought up plenty in this forum over the years, and always in a good light.

As he should be. smile
