Happy 75 To THE PASSENGER!

A year older

22 April 2022

The one and only real Punkfather was born James Newell Osterberg Jr
aka IGGY POP on 21 April 1947 in Muskegon, Michigan. He started moving,
falling, standing up, going totally nuts, and yelling like a madman in 1960.

He canned 5 albums with The Stooges and 18 solo LPs (so far). For the past few
years, he was a guest on countless tracks of other artists. I wonder sometimes how
all these (former) junkies and 24-hour party animals survive and still kickin’ hard.
Anyway…

Happy 75 to the passenger!

The dog is getting older but he still has the heart of a young party animal.
Here’s the living legend still going berserk off and on stage!

– I WANNA BE YOUR DOG –

Have a mad lust for life birthday, Mister Pop…

Not done yet…

Madchester legends Happy Mondays, the 24-party people who
had their golden (dope) years in the 90s. They broke up and reunite
several times and are now performing for some time again for
sell-out crowds.

Happy 57 to happy Monday BEZ!

Happy 80 To The Eternal QUEEN OF SOUL

25 March 2022

The wonderful Aretha Louise Franklin was
born on 25 March 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee.

Happy 80 to the black heroine who started her fantastic music career at the age
of 18. She made no less than 38 studio albums. Her sensational voice, her inspiring
personality, her humanist views on life, and her charismatic looks all contributed to her status of indisputable Queen Of Soul that she was, for several generations. She passed away in 2018, she was 76.

This eternal star deserves so much more than just a little bit of respect…

and he formed the top-notch post punk band Magazine (1977-1981). They
