In the Dec. 10, 2009 issues of The Daily Mail (a London based newspaper) Paul McCartney admitted that marring Heather Mills was his 'biggest mistake." With that said:

On June 11, 2002, three hundred guests, including Elton John, David Gilmour, Chrissie Hynde, and former bandmate Ringo Starr, attended the wedding of Paul McCartney to former model and current activist Heather Mills at St. Salvator Church in Glaslough, Ireland.

Paul's three children from his first marriage all attended. Heather walked down the aisle holding eleven "McCartney" roses specially developed for the occasion.

The union would produce their daughter Beatrice. Any child is a blessing. The couple would divorce in 2008. It cost Paul a fortune.

Ok, here's a change for you to officially agree with Paul, if you want too. Do you agree with his statement from Dec. 10, 2009?

One of ZZ Top's trademarks are the beards on Dusty Hill and Billy F Gibbons. It's just one of those thing that the drummer, who's name is Frank Beard is the one member who doesn't have one.

Today Frank is celebrating his 71st birthday. Ever wonder if he ever really wanted to let his grow out? You know, just to fit in?

Happy Birthday Frank!! Hope you're having a Texas sized party today!

Here's a decision to make. Be the drummer for The Beatles or drive a forklift.

On June 11, 1960, Tommy Moore, who at that time was the drummer for The Beatles was faced with the choice of staying in the band or going back to driving a forklift. Tommy choose to drive the forklift and not the beat.

The Beatles replaced him with Norman Chapman who only lasted for only 3 shows. The band then found Pete Best, and they were off to Germany the next day.

We have to wonder if Tommy ever kicked himself for the decision? But in honesty, at that point, who knew?

Here is a picture of Tommy on drums with John and Paul.

Shirley Owens of the group the Shirelles ("Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow") is 79 years old today.

Shirley was the main lead singer of the hit female singing group the Shirelles. In addition to Owens, the Shirelles consisted of classmates of hers from Passaic High School, New Jersey: Doris Kenner Jackson, Addie "Micki" Harris McPhadden and Beverly Lee.

Through marriages, she became Shirley Alston and later, Shirley Alston Reeves. Her strong, distinctive voice meant that she was the natural choice for their main lead singer, though Jackson was also featured as lead on several songs as well. Her nephew, Gerald Alston is the lead singer of The Manhattans.

Reeves enjoyed a string of hits with the Shirelles throughout the 1960s. She left the Shirelles in 1975 to begin a solo career, initially recording under the name "Lady Rose".

June 10th 1941 Born This Day Shirley Owens, singer with American girl group The Shirelles, notable for their popularity in the early 1960s. They were the first all-female black group to have a No.1 hit record with 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow' in 1961.

Frank Sinatra called him "the only true genius in show business".

16 years ago today we lost the legendary Ray Charles. We could go on for days about him music and accomplishments, but it is best to say it all in 4 words:

"He was Ray Charles".

Ray was only 73 years old when he passed. He is a true American treasure.

RIP Ray. Thank You for so much.

There are different generations of REO Speedwagon fans. In the late 60's early 70's when they were first starting to make a name for themselves in the midwest, they were fronted by Terry Luttrell. Terry was the band's lead singer on their first LP.

There are a number of people who saw REO at places like Majestic Hills, a concert venue just south of Lake Geneva, WI (the place was often called the world's largest chicken coop) that still feel that version of the band was their 'best ever' period.

Terry has 73 candles on his birthday cake today. For those of you who never saw REO with Terry…. Nothing against Kevin, but the band did change a little…. here is a video of the song "Gypsy Woman's Passion" off their debut LP. With great guitar by the late Gary Richrath.

After he left REO, Terry also did a few records with Starcastle, a band many compared to Yes. He also produced a number of bands. Just such a talented man.

Happy Birthday Terry!!!!! Those were magical days for so many.

It is commonly accepted that Janis Joplin performed her first show with Big Brother and the Holding Company at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco on June 10, 1966.

However, if you research the posters from that time period, June 10 and 11, 1966 were the famous nights of 'The Quick and The Dead" at the Avalon. Janis arrived back in San Francisco on June 4, 1966. BBHC was playing the Avalon on the 3rd and 4th of June.

If she did sing at the Avalon with BBHC on June 10, was it an unadvertised performance by the band?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It must have been a great time to be in San Francisco.

The late Jackie Wilson Jr. ("(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher") was born on this day in 1934.

This American soul singer and performer was a tenor with a four-octave range and was a prominent figure in the transition of rhythm and blues into soul. Wilson was considered a master showman and one of the most dynamic singers and performers in pop, R&B, and rock & roll history, earning the nickname "Mr. Excitement".

Wilson gained initial fame as a member of the R&B vocal group Billy Ward and His Dominoes. He went solo in 1957 and scored over 50 chart singles spanning the genres of R&B, pop, soul, doo-wop and easy listening, including 16 R&B Top 10 hits, in which six R&B of the repertoire ranked as number ones. On the Billboard Hot 100, Wilson scored 14 top 20 pop hits, six of which reached the top 10. Jackie Wilson was one of the most important and influential musical artists of his generation.

Wilson was posthumously inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. He is also inducted into the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame. Two of Wilson's recordings were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Jackie Wilson No. 69 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Wilson died on January 21, 1984, at age 49 from complications of pneumonia after being in a coma since 1975.

This picture speaks volumes. If you take an extremely talented keyboard player who decides to put a legendary Hammond Organ thru a Marshall amp. Deep Purple's Jon Lord did just that. It changed the way musicians used keyboards.

Jon would have been celebrating his 79th birthday today. Sadly, Jon passed away on July 16, 2012.

We have also posted that today would have been Les Paul's 105th birthday. Think how different music would sound if it weren't for these two, Jon Lord and Les Paul. Born on the same day (a few years apart). The moons and the stars must have in phase on June 9th, 1915 and 1941.

Happy Birthday Jon. We thank you on so many levels.

If we were to ask the question, who do you think the most important man in the history of popular music was, we know we would get a wide variety of answers. If we asked you to name your top 10 most important, we can only imagine…..

We are pretty sure many of you would include Les Paul on your list. Not only did help play a major part in the development of the electric guitar, he also was a pioneer in multi-track record. Oh and he was a hell of a guitar player. (He is also Steve Miller's Godfather).

If he were still with us, Les Paul would have turned 105 years old today.

Just the thought of that is worth some serious reflection.

Happy Birthday Les. Thank you for so much on so many levels. One day well get Superstar Producer / Engineer Eddie Kramer to tell the story of Les and multi-track recording.

Brian Jones, who was a founding member of The Rolling Stones, made the formal announcement that he was leaving the band on June 8th, 1969. His reason for leaving was that he "no longer see(s) eye to eye (with the group about) the discs we are cutting."

In reality, the band had already fired / told him he was no longer a member because of his worsening drug use. The announcement was Brian's way trying to hide the real reason. Sadly in less than a month Brian was found dead.

To this day there are many different theories of how he died.

Many feel that after Brian left the band, they were never as good. What are your thoughts about it?

On June 8, 1963, The Crystals' song "Da Doo Ron Ron" peaked at #3 on the Billboard Pop chart. The effort is the brain child of Phil Spector, who uses a multi-track recording system to build the song layer upon layer to achieve a result that will become known as a "wall of sound".

Now here's the cool part. The studio musicians who played on this recording included Glen Campbell on guitar, Hal Blain on drums, Leon Russell on piano and Nino Tempo on sax.

Long before the term 'supergroup' was ever used. 57 years ago….

"Welcome to Texas lads"

Texas is one of the great places for Rock and Roll. But it hasn't always been that way.

On June 7, 1964, The Rolling Stones played a 'teen fair' in San Antonio, TX. The warm up act, or probably in this case just an act that was on before them, was a troupe of dancing monkeys. (not Micky Dolenz type The Monkees)

Keep in mind, this was one of the first shows in Texas by a band that was part of the British Invasion. The audience wasn't ready for "that" kind of music.

The Stones were booed off stage. The dancing monkeys came back on.
The picture is of the Stones, on stage in San Antonio, both post and pre monkeys….
