On this, the fourteenth day of my birth month, I’ve always known since I was a kid that it is the birthday of the greatest baseball player that is NOT currently in the Hall of Fame, Mr. Pete Rose (1941). However, it has come to my knowledge that it is also the birthday of a musical legend…former Deep Purple guitarist and co-creator of folksy rock group Blackmore’s Night, Richie Blackmore (1945). If you haven’t checked them out yet, you’re in for a treat, because they are unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Think of musical selections from a bygone era…like the Middle Ages…and add every instrument from guitar to mandolin to tambourines, etc. and that sums them up.
Also, on today’s birthday list are country superstar Loretta Lynn (1932), comedian Brad Garrett (1960), former Atlanta Braves’ superstars David Justice and Greg Maddux, both born in 1966, comedian Anthony Michael Hall (1968), actor Adrian Brody was born in 1973, WWE Hall of Famer Lita Dumas (1975) and multi-talented actress Sarah Michelle Gellar was born in 1977.
I would apologize for the abbreviated post but I do have a career, you know…
