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.

Happy 40th Birthday, Billion Dollar Babies!
The original band called Alice Cooper released its sixth studio album, Billion Dollar Babies, on this date, February 25th, in 1973. Billion Dollar Babies, which went to the Number One position on every chart, is a very special album for me. Favorite Song: “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
Here I am on one of Alice Cooper Drummer Neal Smith’s drum kits. All of Neal’s Gold and Platinum Albums earned for sales of Alice Cooper band records are on the walls behind me. Billion Dollar Babies is in there, somewhere.

Nick Lowe, Releases Jesus Of Cool
On This Date, February 25th, in 1978: Nick Lowe released his debut album, Jesus Of Cool (entitled Pure Pop for Now People in the states). It contained the singles “(I Love The Sound Of) Breaking Glass,” “Little Hitler” and “So It Goes,” and well as fan favorites like “Marie Provost” – with its uber-dark lyrical humor – and Lowe’s delirious ode to Bay City Rollers fanatics everywhere, “Rollers Show.” Absolutely indispensable British Power Pop.
