# CDV…(405)…Memory in Book Form…

I will just let the following excerpt speak for itself…

# lxxiv…”Send Me an Angel”…

Today’s date is May 25th and, from looking at today’s calendar, I find out that it is the birthday of The Scorpions’ frontman Klaus Meine (1948).  The reason that this man’s name is on today’s list is the fact that the band has been rocking the scene since 1965…yes, folks, you read that correctly…this man has been fronting this German wunderkind band for 50 years…you’d be hard-pressed to find one with that much longevity.

However, with the band’s multiplicity of awards and honors, it is the title above that will always stick in my head with this band.  The story behind it was I was actually singing this song, to the sky, of course, when I heard that I was going to become a father, on my porch in Highlands, NJ…as the album was released in 1990…aaah…the lovely memories before kids!

Anyways, if you get the chance to check out their extensive catalogue, please do so…18 albums in 50 years means you can enjoy Klaus’ unique voice…

Presenting the birthday twins of the German superstar; late actor Claude Akins (1926-1994), late author Robert Ludlum (1927-2001), late opera star Beverly Sills (1929-2007), country legend Tom T. Hall (1936), late “Designing Women” star Dixie Carter (1939-2010), everyone’s favorite “Master of Magnetism” Sir Ian McKellen (1939) and actress Leslie Uggams was born in 1943.

Famous puppeteer and actor Frank Oz (1944), actress Connie Sellecca (1955), comedian/actor Mike Myers (1963), Megadeth and King Diamond guitarist Glen Drover (1969), actress Anne Heche (1969), actor Jamie Kennedy (1970), wrestling star Alberto del Rio (1977), NFL linebacker Brian Urlacher (1978), famous racing family member A.J. Foyt IV (1984) and wrestling personalities Roman Reigns (1985) and Bo Dallas (1990) finish the list for today.

Until we next meet…in the future…
