08.29: On this day in 1958, Michael Jackson was born. Despite his numerous bouts of odd behavior over the years, he was still the man who gave us “Beat It,” "Human Nature," and “Billie Jean." And nothing will change that. Ever.

08.29: The Beatles last real concert, at Candlestick Park in San Fran, went down on this day in 1966. Instead of constant touring, the band wanted to focus on recording albums. Though a loss to some fans, the music world gained immeasurably from this, as the guys put out some of the best albums of all time, taking studio recording to new heights and unexpected directions with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (The so-called White Album), Abbey Road, and Let It Be.

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.
