Happy birthday also to the king of romance paperback novel covers and current Old Spice guy, 51-year old Fabio, and a 57-year old Twisted Sister Dee Snider, who appeared regularly when a then-brand new network called MTV embarked thirty years ago. Others born on this day include the man on a twenty-dollar bill and 7th president of the United States, Andrew Jackson, and the guy who played Alex Rieger on Taxi, Judd Hirsch.


Despite his battles with cocaine addiction, Sly Stone turns 68 today.


One of the founding members of the Grateful Dead, bass player Phil Lesh turns 68 today. Even if you’re not a deadhead, Skeltons From The Closet belongs in any rock music collection; it is one of the better ‘greatest hits’ albums out there.
