# CDLXXI…Late Iconic Guitarist, Uncovered…

For those celebrating today, September 16, as their birthday, I present this little snippet from the now-defunct (but coming back?) book…

# cxl…Late Blues Legend…

Today, if you’re celebrating on September 16th, is also the birthday of late blues guitarist B.B. King (1925-2015), whose career in the industry is very well-documented and well-respected.  His sixty-seven year career included 43 albums (some wonderful collaborations, too) and 15 Grammy Awards…and, as I said, well-respected and known to have influenced some of the greatest guitarists of all time.

A member of the Rock-n-Roll and Blues Halls-of-Fame, his guitar-playing prowess has often tried to be emulated…but none can compare to the late legend whose name is also synonymous now with a popular music “hot spot”…

Also celebrating with you are/were; late actress Lauren Bacall (1924-2014), late “Columbo” star Peter Falk (1927-2011), veteran actor Ed Begley, Jr. (1949), superstar actor Mickey Rourke (1952), magician extraordinaire David Copperfield (1956), former Dodgers’ fireballer Orel Hershiser (1958) and actress Jennifer Tilly (1958).

Finishing today’s list are; singer Richard Marx (1963), Skid Row guitarist Dave Sabo (1964), singer/actor Marc Anthony (1968), comedienne Amy Poehler (1971) and pop heartthrob Nick Jonas was born in 1992.
