Today is a great day, the greatest day in the whole world, because it’s time for New Year’s Day. I want to wish everybody luck, happiness and health, and also my wish for our world is to become more kind and strong.
These are the snakes (NOT MINE! unfortunately…), made with looking back on Russian cinema merry heroes Coward, Booby and Worldly-Wise, to give you some joy. ;-)
Yes, Adam Ant is coming back (soon we will hear from him first album for the last 17 years!!!)! And, by the way, today he turns 58. Happy birthday, Adam! :-)
Today is the birthday of one of members of new wave band “Duran Duran” Simon Le Bon - he turns 54!
I wish Simon health and luck and also “Duran Duran” to come in Russia again! ;-)
Today the drummer of rock band “Motley Crue” Tommy Lee celebrates his 50th anniversary.
Today is the birthday of a former frontman of cult band “Roxy Music” and successful solo performer Bryan Ferry - he turns 67 today.
Happy birthday, Bryan! :)
Today we have the reason to drink some champagne… because it’s a jubilee of Liam Gallagher, the former frontman of rock band “Oasis”. He celebrates his 40th anniversary.
Happy birthday, Liam!
Today is the 51th birthday of french performer Mylene Farmer, one of the most mysterious women in pop scene.
Today Roger Waters, former bass guitar player of “Pink Floyd” and a person with an active political attitude, is 69! Happy Birthday, Roger!
Today is the day when Freddie Mercury could celebrate his 66th birthday. We will always miss such a man with so powerful voice and so much energy.
Today Michael Jackson could celebrate his 54th birthday… Let’s remember this talented man…
45 years ago after an accidental drug overdose Brian Epstein died.
In the first place he is known as manager of “The Beatles”. Of course, every member of this band is talented person, and all together they did very much for history of music, but due to Brian they became famous, so thanks to him.
Today we have one more might-have-been jubilee - Layne Staley, frontman of iconic rock band “Alice In Chains”, could celebrate his 45th anniversary…
If Joe Strummer was alive at this day, he could celebrate his 60th anniversary… Thanks for “The Clash” band, for its music, its music riots and, most of all, for making history of music. Not only London, but every town, I think, will always call such talents as you.
Today frontman of rock band “System of a down” Serj Tankian celebrates his 45th anniversary. Honestly, the music like one of “System of a down” is not my cup of tea, but, to say about the last one, I like its atmosphere and if I liked such music, I would get acquainted to the creation of “SOAD”. Also I heard from my friends, which are fans of this band, that their concerts are “f**king fantastic” - I believe them. I wish I could understand the music of such a band, but now I will just greet Serj with this anniversary and wish him happiness and health. :)
Yesterday was a birthday of Ian Gillan, and today is a birthday of another great vocalist - Robert Plant, frontman of iconic band “Led Zeppelin”. He turns 64 today. Happy Birthday, Robert!
Today is a really great day for those who love real rock music. Two birthdays: one is celebrated by Ian Gillan (67th birthday), frontman of “Deep Purple” and, as for me, one of the best vocalists ever; second is celebrated by bass guitar player John Deacon (61st birthday).
Only today I remembered that yesterday Madonna celebrated her 54th birthday. I feel very sorry for that I forgot about birthday of one of my favourite singers of all times, but, to the other hand, it’s not a crime to greet a person later. So I greet Madonna and wish her happiness and health. And also patience to her fans (you know what I mean :P ).
p.s.: By the way…
I want to raid Dave’s closet for all his clothes over the past 30 years
I think Dave could in several years become a designer, because he has really great clothes in his “wardrobe” (I mean ones which Dave wore in videos and in photosessions).
I have problems. :I I should really delete them all, but then I’d cry.
I feel the same.
Today Mark Knopfler, one of the founders of rock band “Dire Straits”, is 63! Happy Birthday, Mark!
Today we have one more jubilee. Ian Anderson, the frontman of one of the most unusual bands, the person due to whom the flute became traditional music instrument along with such ones as guitars and drums, is 65 today!
I wish him happiness and to do more interesting works!
Today is the birthday of inimitable frontman of one of the greatest (and the most long-living) rock bands “The Rolling Stones” - Mick Jagger. He is 69 today! So Happy Birthday, Mick, and I wish you to be as powerful and energetic as you have always been! :D
Today Martin Gore, which has written the major part of “Depeche Mode” songs, is 51! Happy Birthday, Martin!
Today is a day of one more anniversary in this year - Brian May, guitarist of rock band “Queen” and scientist (he is astrophysic), is 65!
I respect the band “Queen”, but also I respect Brian for being a great musician and good scientist simultaneously.
I wish Brian to have more success with both music and science. :)
This day is darkened for people, who loves rock music, by tragical news…
Today, in the 72th year Jon Lord died. He was one of the first musicians to find a combination of rock music and classical one, also he was one of the initiators of iconic rock band “Deep Purple” and his style of playing the keyboard was one of the distinctive character of their music.
R.I.P. Jon Lord.
This year is rich for its jubilees, at least, of persons connected with music. And one more jubilee is…
Yes, it is. Peter Murphy, “Godfather of goth”, as he is called sometimes, frontman of iconic band “Bauhaus” (one of which defined the style of goth), is 55 today! He is still full of power and charm.
I want to wish Peter happiness in his private life and inspiration for his new works! :)
