George Harrison, my favorite Beatle, would have been 70 years old today, having been born on February 25th, 1943. If you haven’t yet seen the Martin Scorcese directed Harrison Biopic Living In The Material World, you should check it out.

The late Janis Joplin was born on this day, January 19th, in 1943. Today she would have been 70 years old. She is still the best female vocalist ever, in my opinion.

Happy Birthday, Creed Bratton!



Former guitarist for the sixties’ pop band Grass Roots, Creed Bratton, was born on this day, February 8th in 1943! Creed can be seen in the video above for the Grass Roots’ awesome hit, “Midnight Confessions,” wearing a royal blue shirt, standing on the far left. These days, Creed is best known for playing a fictionalized version of himself, Dunder Mifflin customer service rep Creed Bratton, on NBC’s The Office. Happy Birthday Creed! Thanks for the great music and all the laughs!

Happy Birthday, Roger Taylor and Mick Jagger!

Roger Taylor Drums

I’m not sure how I missed the fact for all of these years that Queen drummer Roger Taylor, shares July 26th, his anniversary of birth, with Mick Jagger. Taylor made his first appearance on the planet in 1949, while Jagger was here a few years before that, in 1943. I mean Mick Jagger is Mick Jagger – the guy is just everywhere – but Queen is the band that were like a religion to me at a time (high school) when music can really, literally save your life. So I really should have committed his birthday to memory at this point. Sorry Roger! Happy Birthday guys!

All Things Must Pass: 1943-2001 (George Harrison with Paramahansa Yogananda)

George Harrison my favorite Beatle, was born on this day, February 25th in 1943. I am celebrating his birthday today by playing All Things Must Pass, which is not only his best album but arguably the best solo album by any former Beatle. That includes Paul McCartney’s Ram and what ever John Lennon album has “#9 Dream” on it. If you find yourself in the mood today to get a bit nostalgic about George, here’s an excellent article/memorium on his life and career.
