Music Birthdays - May 25

May 25th: Born on this day

  • Miles Davis, Jazz legend - 1926 (died September 1991). Useless fact# 30,805:  Miles Davis was born in Alton Illinois, and raised in East St. Louis.  Homework:  Listen to Kind Of Blue today.  If you don't have it, GET IT!
  • Robert (Robby) Steinhardt, violin and vocals, Kansas - 1950. Useless fact# 31805:  Steinhardt is the only original member of Kansas who was not born in Topeka.  Homework:  After you listen to Miles Davis, change pace with Masque
  • John Grimaldi, guitar Argent - 1955
  • Paul Weller, singer, guitarist, The Jam - 1958.  More Homework:  Be sure and dial up The Jam after Miles Davis and Kansas....  I'll probably go with "Sound Affects"...
