Happy Birthday!

Wow! Some majorly important figures in this thing of ours are celebrating their b-days’ this weekend.

Born on this day in 1949 in Houston, Texas, Jimi Hendrix would famosuly once state that Billy was one of the few guitarists he would pay to see.

I sometimes wonder if Paul gets all the credit he deserves for the astounding career he’s forged: not only¬†possessing¬†one of rock’s most distinctive set of pipes, he’s had tremendous success with Free, The Firm, Queen and of course, the one and only Bad Company.

The recently reunited Bad Company are currently in post-production for their upcoming documentary called Movin’ On, which chronicles the band’s 2010 gigs. No release date has been announced.

And last but certainly hardly least, as the world’s greatest rock and roll band gets set to celebrate their 50th year in existence, the best friend that classic rock (and Jack Daniels and heroin, for that matter) ever had will be 68 on Sunday.

Probably pointless to even mark the date, since The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards can’t die.

Happy birthday to all and thanks for the music!
