David Sylvian (born David Alan Batt), best known by me as lead vocalist for the late great glam-cum-moody-electronica band Japan, was born on this day, February 23, in 1958. Favorite Japan Song: “Television.” Happy Birthday, David!
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!
It’s also the birthday of one of my very favorite people, Al Jourgensen of Ministry (“Apply directly to the forehead…”). Happy Birthday, Al!
