Born to Be Wild Day!

It certainly was for the rock group Steppenwolf today in 1968. Today was the release date for their anthem “Born to Be Wild”.

It’s a mighty day for music!

–          Master clarinetist George Lewis was born today in 1900. I have happily strolled down “Burgundy Street” with Mr. Lewis many times. One day I should actually go there…yes?

–          Roger McGuinn of the Byrds was born today in 1942.

–          Eric Clapton released his “I Shot the Sheriff” today in 1974. Your assignment; “Who did he not shoot?”

–          The number one hit in the land today in 1964 was the Four Seasons’ “Rag Doll”. Ah…teen angst…a yet to be fully explored option to solve the country’s energy woes.

–          Jazz bassist Leroy Vinnegar was born today in 1928. “The Walker” was one of the foundations of the Left Coast Jazz of the 50’s and 60’s.
