06.20: The births of many a musician occured on this day. First up is Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson (seriously, we know it's de rigueur to shower praise on Pet Sounds, but Brian Wilson's insanse work ethic brought out the amazing in the whole group), born in 1942. Next, Lionel Richie didn't dance on the ceiling at first, but that didn't come too long after his birth on this day in 1949. Next, the scrubbed-from-Van-Halen-history (for real, they tried to replace him on the album art for Van Halen with Eddie's son, Wolfgang) bass player Michael Anthony took the stage for the first time on this day in 1954. Finally, Duran Duran's bassist extraordinaire, John Taylor, slapped his way into this world and, eventually, onto the world stage on this day in 1960. "Girls On Film" just wouldn't be the same without his slappy hands.

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.
