    Default Rock N Roll Birthdays

    I thought I would start a new thread of Rock N Roll birthdays. I know I posted Eric Burdon's birthday yesterday but thought it would be kinda cool to have a thread dedicated to these. Feel free to add whenever you know of one.

    I will start out with today's...

    Steve Winwood turns 61 today
    (LOVE him!!)

    Another musician (although not a rock'n'roller) born on May 12 is Burt Bacharach. He's more famous for songwriting than singing, but for those who don't recognize the name, he wrote What the World Needs Now, Alfie, (They Long to Be) Close to You, Always Something There to Remind Me, I Say a Little Prayer, Do You Know the Way to San Jose, Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head, Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do), That's What Friends Are For, and On My Own, among others.

    Here's a medley from 1967.

    Willie, I LOVE Stevie Winwood too! Arc of a Diver and Talking Back to the Night are two of my favorite albums from the past. HB Stevie!! Great idea for a thread, BTW!

    No problem Soda--You know all things Rock n Roll are my passion and I love doing these kind of "tribute" things to the people involved in it. I just hope I'm not boring everybody with it.
