10.03: Rock ‘n roll got an infusion of talent on October 3rd. Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954), one of the greatest guitar players ever, Tommy Lee (1962), one of the greatest metal drummers ever, and Gwen Stefani (1969), one of the greatest wives of Gavin Rossdale ever, were all welcomed into the world today.

10.03: Sinead O’Connor took on the Catholic Church, and lost, apparently, when she tore up a photo of Pope John Paul II during a 1992 performance on Saturday Night Live. The singer’s popularity waned following the incident and she was booed off the stages of many performances, including Bob Dylan’s 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert at Madison Square Garden in New York. To us, however, this does nothing to take away either the power of her voice or of the mesmerizing and haunting video for “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Watching that video still gives us chills.

05.30: On this day in 1987, Ireland took over the US charts. U2 was No. 1 with “With or Without You” and Chris de Burgh scored one for every guy that’s met some girl at a bar and woke up the next morning wondering why she was in his bed with “Lady in Red”. Two very different songs, yet both of the '80s. Can you guess which one is our more favoritist? Yeah, we're big on that Bono guy. He's dreamy.

05.24: Quick! By what nom de plume is Robert Allen Zimmerman better known by? If you said Bob Dylan you get a cookie. Bobby, as we like to call him, was born on this day in 1941. One of the greatest, if not the greatest, singer/songwriters ever to take up a guitar, Mr. Dylan's contributions to the '60s canon can never be underestimated. From his early work in folk, leading the way for the protest music that would influence the decade, to his plugging in, leading the way for the electric and psychedelic music that would also inform the decade, Bob Dylan's music built on his own emotions, his own stories, and took over popular music. Bob is the man. We could go on and on and on, but we shan't. If you wanna know more about the man, just use that newfangled interwebs. It's got everything.
