HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICKY SCAGGS! I'm not a big fan of blue grass, but I do give it a listen now and then. I love your take on it and your many Grammys prove you know what your doing!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MARTHA REEVES! No Where to Run, Heat Wave and Dancing in the Streets are some of my favorite Motown hits!

I always kind of laugh when I think about it.......

Ecorse, MI is located on the Detroit River. When I was a kid, they used to( and still do) have a fireworks display every 4th of July with the fireworks being launched off a barge docked at an "island" just a short way off the shore of a riverside park they've had there for years. It's now called "Dingell Park" after the U.S. Congressman who hailed from that city.

ONE year, the city closed off Jefferson Ave, between two major stems in the city, and let people fill the Ave. just to stand around and played records over a loudspeaker so the "kids" could dance and party. And actually, the FIRST time I ever HEARD the song "Dancing In The Streets" was at that 4th gathering when people WERE actually dancing in the street! grin

CARLOS SANTANA
Who turns 70 today. Him and the band with his name churned out some great tunes in their time and Carlos still goes at it. Seems to be just no stopping him.

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 07/20/17 08:18 PM

I saw Santana live on their first national tour at the Arena in Philly, on a bill with The Youngbloods, Canned Heat, and Chicago. Santana came on next to last as Chicago had the bigger fame at the time. but Santana was absolutely outstanding that night, the rest were fair to mediocre.

Happy Birthday Carlos long may you live and play.....

Happy birthday to Santana one of my favorites too. He has been to Michigan or will be soon but I can't get to the show. I don;t know why so many shows are on week nights two or more hours drive from home instead of Saturday night when I would try to go. Passed on a George Benson recently same reason. Jim

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 07/24/17 11:40 AM

I've been lucky I guess at concerts. The warm up bands are sometimes better than the main liners! I think the fans at that Yes concert just want to hear their guys and would boo anyone that got up there back in those days. I have experienced idiot hecklers during stand up comedy, but that is to be expected and is sometimes funny as part of the show. The comedians are usually pretty sharp and putting the idiots in their place though LOL! Rude people at concerts need to get booted IMHO... crazy

Geo Clinton ,beyond Berry, was / is the major music force outta DT.
Posted By: whitefang

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 07/27/17 08:45 AM

Clinton did work (and without much success) as a staff songwriter and occasional music producer for Motown for a spell, but his "fame" really didn't come until a song he wrote for his group The Parliments, which he formed in New Jersey, "(I Wanna) Testify" made it big. And HE as the only actual member of that group ON the record, the rest not able to get to Detroit for the recording session. And his Parliment/Funkadelics group recorded under CASABLANCA records out of New York, and Clinton didn't find solo success until he moved over to CAPITOL records in '81 or so. Doesn't really matter though. He's a "Major music force" regardless of where from. wink

Saw him on the Jersey Shore when he was with Junior Wells It was in a bar upstairs called the Rip Tide in the Schooners Wharf buildings. I sat 10 feet from them and was amazed all night long. Buddy played an ES335 that night. On one tune he shut the whole room full of semi drunk white folks (which I was one of) by turning the volume control down on the 335 and started picking single notes on it un amplified. The whole room went from loud to dead silent and then he eased up the volume little by little playing all by himself, then after a minute or so of that the band came in.

I became a big Buddy Guy admirer that night and still am

Happy Birthday Buddy, and many more happy and healthy ones as well.

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 08/03/17 08:23 AM

OK, both Buddy's and Dhani's birthdays are past now, but I'll add another story I liked that concerned Buddy, but not really ABOUT him.....

It was back in '68, I believe this took place, and Jimi Hendrix was in Chicago to do a concert, and when showtime was getting close, nobody could FIND him anywhere!

A frantic search began and about an hour or so later he was found sitting in a downtown blues club watching and groovin' on Buddy! Nobody in the place had any idea who that oddly dressed cat WAS. wink

@ DBM and Fang, You're very lucky to have been in that club DBM! My daughter attended a Buddy Guy concert and brought home an autographed polka dot guitar strap for me. It's been about 10 years now and that strap has never been on a guitar! I think the world of Buddy and hope I get to go next time! cool

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 08/03/17 06:35 PM

Well, so far it looks like you'll GET that chance. At his age, he doesn't show any signs of slowing down any time soon.

I know what you mean about the strap. Not having anybody's myself, one of my daughter's boyfriends back in the early '90's worked for a local music store that supplied some gear for a venue in Detroit(Chene Park Music Ampitheater) and copped an autograph of B.B. King for me when he was doing a show there and the kid was one of the equipment handlers. Still hangs up framed in my living room! wink

I agree buddy guy is a great talent that I only discovered about 3 or 4 years ago. I missed a chance to see him by a few minutes at his Chicago club a couple years ago. I was parked in a place that locked down at I think 10 PM (I did not know that until one of the club workers told me to get my car out or it would be there until morning. Buddy was coming in at about 10. I saw him arrive as I was leaving but decided I had to go back to the Hotel. I should of found another parking place but I had to get up early the next day for business meetings. Jim

HAPPY BELATED BRITHDAY TO PRINCE! I was never a fan of his music except for a song or two. One that I really liked was When Doves Cry. He was truly a guitar master and I really admired his playing as he could hold is own with the best IMHO! thu

Excuse my intrusion.
Yes, I guess I did get the date wrong.
Can only say I've been a bit, um, distracted this past month.
Thank goodness you were able to figure things out!


As I said last year, PRN was prolly the best combination of talent that we've ever seen: composer, singer, multi-instrument talented (still tryna find a clip of him & his fave concert trick of simultaneously playing RH kboard & LH gtr), arranger & producer.
More than 1/2 his finished tracks are only him.

Plus he tripped the light fantastic as a dancer in ways that went beyond his obvious influence from James Brown into an arty choreography that didn't just fill rhythmic space (as in most stage dance) but served as another interpretation of his tunes.
Beside the 1 above, look at this clip

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0KpfrJE4zw


Far as I'm concerned everyday's his BDay.
I'll trade y' 1 PRN for abt seventy-leven of yer random who's-in-the-paper-today picks.

Y'know, my centering on b'days of the still living is one of convenience. Usually, and if the person is still active, their birthday might be announced somewhere. But looking up the birthdates of long gone and even some recently gone would take me more time on the ol' desktop than I'm both willing and able to take. But....

@ Fang, I was getting after you to start a Birthday Thread as opposed to starting new threads like the Ringo one and then mentioning several others on the thread that had nothing to do with the Ringo discussion. So, you gave it a shot and I think it's successful. You started the thread less than a month ago and have already had 1,374 views (Charlie was born on July 29th BTW). I think when we want to talk about Prince, Elvis, Ringo, [insert name] we can start a new thread on their birth or death or at anytime day. On this thread I'm glad to see you will allow a few RIP's to be included as you do a good job of keeping us informed on the live ones. Just my 2 cents again LOL! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY! cool

Probably not the "greatest" guitar player out there, but clearly far from the worst, his style and musical "personality" surely gave that band it's unmistakable sound.

ROGER WATERS is 74 today.

One of the founders of PINK FLOYD, I guess he's still doing some of their old stuff, but amid a lot of legal hassles with other remaining members. I don't really undersand the what. It's the WHY I understand less.

It's hard for me to deal with the fact the band goes back 50 YEARS. Guess I'm having "growing old" issues. wink

They've buried that hatchet. It involved Waters not wanting to work with the others & 'disbanding' the group. The others said "We're not disbanded. You left. We're Pink Floyd." Waters sued, claiming the name couldn't be used if he wasn't in the band. The issue was decided in court in favor of the 3 others, who went on to make 2 () post-Waters albums under the Pink Floyd name. They did one reunion concert for Live Aid with all 4 of them many years later, & Gilmour appeared in Waters' tour of The Wall. They've gone separate ways but have at least ended the feud.

Feel free D...some guys don't like the combined thread idea for BD's. For the most part all that's needed is a Happy Birthday one liner. I like it this way as we can elaborate at any time and/or start a special thread if we want to about the artist. They are going to have a repeat every 365 days and this way we don't tie up the forum with thousands of Happy Birthdays. I think we get more commentary on the RIP threads on artists we all love and hate to see go away...
Posted By: whitefang

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 09/18/17 02:53 PM

The whole idea is to just wish certain people well on the day of their birth. Anyone can say if they like them as artists if they want. and if they don't, well, just don't post anything.

Posting their entire biogaphy and analysis of their complete discography isn't really necessary until an RIP thread sadly happens.

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 10/03/17 08:49 AM

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

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.

It's your thread Fang, but I would keep the RIP threads separate from the BD threads. The RIP's get into a little more detail as is respectful and historical. BD's come around every 365 days so we hit the same artists over and over again. Then we could have a 3rd category for acknowledging the RIP BD's on guys and gals like Elvis, Jimi, SRV, Django, Dela, Lester, etc. (guitarist or not). Just a thought... cool

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.

If you go back over this thread Fang, I'll bet you find most (at least most of the last few) artists are in their 50's 60's and 70's. Where have all the young ones gone? idk
Posted By: whitefang

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 03/18/18 07:00 PM

I use a site called "On This Day.com", click on the "music" tab and these are what they offer. And not all get listed as some are found to have died without an acknowledgement of their death in the listing. Often there is, but sometimes not. But if the musician is generally well known, the name will probably be listed on the person's birthday, But too obscure probably won't get mention.

I second that Roy was a big influence to me working to learn more when I was a kid. I will always remember one tv appearance when he said something like "some young guitar players may not want to watch this it may stunt your growth" then he played some very fast awsome song. Happy birthday to Roy. Jim

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 05/08/18 08:28 AM

That's a good 'un Larry. But most of us long time Seger fans( goin' back to mid '60's) would choose a much older one. For instance, with so many to choose from, both "Lucifer"('70) and "Persecution Smith"('66) are fighting for the top spot with me. wink Only wish I could post 'em. frown Oh, and also, being as I am from Lincoln Park, MI, I (and most LP guys) have a soft spot for "Back In '72". You'd have to listen closely to figure out why. wink

So, getting back---

Today, Rockabiily picker BILLY BURNETTE( Johnny's nephew) is 65;
and
JOE BONNAMASSA is 41.

ps. I didn't really hear Seger's stuff until about '75, when he became more famous with his Silver Bullet band. He had a lot of great hits and is a great singer-songwriter. cool
Posted By: whitefang

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 05/09/18 08:19 AM

Sure, we here in MI agree it took WAY too long for the rest of the U.S. to catch up with Bob. You can still access YouTube, so go check out some of that early stuff. A HUGE hit(two actually) in the '60's was one called "2+2", and another was "Ramblin', Gamblin' Man".

A 3rd from that era would be '67's "Heavy Music" pts 1 and 2 , which did sort of become his "signature" song. wink

Meantime:

Today STEVE KATZ turns 73;
PAUL HEATON of The Housemartins is 56;
and
PIERRE BOUVIER of Simple Plan is 39.
Whitefang
Posted By: Larryz

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 05/09/18 11:25 AM

I went back and listened to 2+2, Ramblin and Heavy Music 1 and 2 with the Heard. I pretty much like Bob's later stuff like Old Time Rock and Roll, Night Moves, Still the Same, Turn the Page, etc., with the Silver Bullet Band...meantime:

Happy Birthday to Steve, Paul and Pierre! thu
Posted By: whitefang

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 05/10/18 07:30 AM

Yeah, well, some of those I suggested were with "The Last Heard" and others with "The Bob Seger System". He did a single some years later('71) "Lookin' Back" with Teegarden and Van Winkle. But we here(as I mentioned somewhere earlier) in Lincoln Park, MI, due to the misinformation that he was born here, and the fact that he went to the high school here for a semester, take a sort of pride in his sardonic reference to the town in "Back In '72". grin You'd have to give it a close listen to get what I mean. wink

But to press on........

Today sees both DAVE MASON(Traffic)
and
Long time favorite DONOVAN(Leitch) reaching 72!

Well, the only TRAFFIC album I have is one without Dave, so I'll just have to listen to Donovan's "Greatest Hits" a few times today. wink

A special Happy Birthday to Ramblin Jack Elliot! I got to see him live in our local venue a couple of years ago. He can still entertain us! thu

ps. I wished Ramblin Jack a special Happy Birthday today! I saw him here in our local venue a couple of years ago! He opened for John Prine! Looked it up and it was on December 12, 1015...what a lucky dog I was. My Daughter and Son n law gave me and the wife the tickets, as an anniversary present...Prine and Jack came back and played the same venue last May, so Ramblin Jack is still quite active in his older years!

Actually true-----

I got my first electric guitar @ age i6 in late summer of '67. It was that cheap-O Kalamazoo I've mentioned before. And after picking some notes on it for a while, the first FULL song I played on it was to strum and sing along with The Bee Gees' "New York Mining Disaster 1941" grin Which came out earlier that year( their American music debut).

"zoomed" you again, eh? wink

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 01/25/19 08:50 AM

wink Yeah. And ANOTHER one I liked UNTIL hitting it "big"( "Kentucky Woman" '67, the last tune I REALLY liked). But true too, a lot of his songs DID become known as American "standards".

And too...ANDY COX of Fine Young Cannibals, 63, is all for today.

Re: OK...Happy Birthday to... - 01/25/19 12:00 PM

I saw Neil Diamond live on stage about 5 years ago in Stockton, CA. about 50 miles away from home. The city funded the show at 1 million dollars for 1 performance. They didn't sell enough tickets and were facing a huge loss so they offered tickets at reduced prices. Normally I do not attend big concerts due to crowds and traffic jams. But, for $25 bucks a piece, the wife and I took advantage of a chance to see an American icon. Glad I went. I'm not a big fan but have always liked a lot of his tunes and he put on a great show! If I had to pick just one song it would be Solitary Man. cool

Asleep at the Wheel is one of my favorites Chris! I have seen the band live twice in the last two years and sat up front both times. When you come to Folsom, CA again, I'll be there! cool

George benson is a name I have not see or thought about for awhile. I liked some of his music from the 80's I guess. I had a cassette or record once but have no idea where it is now. Happy birthday to all. Jim
