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.
Jimi Hendrix would have celebrated his 70th Birthday today, November 27th, 2012. RIP Jimi!
Lou Reed, whom I think we can all agree is a Rock Legend, was born on this day, March 2nd in 1942. I can wish Lou a Happy Birthday for giving us great songs like “Perfect Day” and “Satellite of Love,” but I can’t seem to get past that mortifying horrorshow of an album he made with Metallica last year.
