John “The Ox” Entwistle, bassist for The Who and astounding musical genius, was born on this today, October 9th, in 1944. Of course, Entwistle is not the only massively-famous-but-dead rock star posthumously celebrating a birthday today. John Lennon (born in 1940) would have celebrated a birthday on today’s date had he not been assassinated by the psychotic Mark David Chapman in 1980. John Lennon’s son Sean also turns another year older today (Born 1975), and Al Jorgensen of Ministry (Born 1958) and a zillion other projects has lived for another year as today. Happy Birthday, guys!

Happy Birthday Al Jourgensen and John Lennon!!

John Rocks

John Mania!

Today John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono unveils the John Lennon Imagine Peace Tower in Rekjavik, Iceland on what would have been the late Beatle’s 67th birthday. Happy Birthday, John!

October 9th is also the birthday of one of my very favorite people, Al Jourgensen of Ministry (“Apply directly to the forehead…”). Happy Birthday, Al!

Santa Al!

Happy Birthday, Al Jourgensen!
