09.19: On this day in 1981, Simon and Garfunkel reunited for a concert in New York’s Central Park. It was their first appearance together on stage in 11 years. Just in case you weren't there, don't remember, or have no clue as to exactly how popular these guys were, 750,000 people attended this concert. Three quarters of a million people! Listening to "Mrs. Robinson," "Slip Slidin' Away," and "The Sounds of Silence"! What a strange, strange world we do inhabit.

09.20: On this day in 1973, Jim Croce died in a plane crash, another young casualty on the road of fallen musicians. Croce's working man storyteller style hit a chord in the early '70s, along with his smooth, honest voice, driving "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" and, posthumously, "Time In A Bottle" to the top of the charts.

06.07: This day in 1960 witnessed the birth of one of the most unique talents in all of rock and funk, when Prince Rogers Nelson danced his way onto this earth. We adore Prince. We respect his unbridled talent more than, well, just about anyone, really. Whether we are listening to Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain, or Sign O' The Times, we can't help but sit in rapt awe of the man and his music. We know he is a control freak, and has, in recent years, taken even his most ardent fans to task by having his legal team send out a plethora of cease-and-desist orders in regards to images of his royalness on any website save his own, but we still dig Prince. We don't have to like the man to appreciate his musical genius.
