Today was the day that Steve Perry said “BYE BYE” to Journey for the final time to embark on a solo career. Perry was the band’s lead singer from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998. This guy has a voice !! You’ll get goosebumps listening to Perry’s vocals isolated in the studio, singing “Don’t Stop Believin”.
Get ready to put 46 candles on a cake today for Mike Dirnt of Green Day, because today is his birthday !!

Dirnt can be seen in the above picture with Green Day stalker Baby Huey anxiously waiting for security to remove the Hue-ster from the restricted area. Here’s the entire set from Green Day when they performed at Woodstock in 1994. It starts off with Dirnt giving the best concert intro I’ve ever heard.
James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, was born on this day in 1933. Today would have been his 85th birthday. James Brown died December 5, 2006. The saddest aspect of Brown’s death was it took 76 days to actually bury his body, his body was dismembered as part of a paternity dispute, AND his body was relocated 14 times because of family in-fighting.
Here’s James Brown from an appearance he made on the Midnight Special.
