WACKY WEDNESDAY: Famous Musicians' Birthdays Today


It's the Oneth of the month! Aug. 1 is the birtday of several iconic musicians. Here is some music from some of them.

First, Suzi Gardner of L7 turns 58 today. Here she is singing one of my favorite L7 songs, "Andres."




Chuck D of Public Enemy also turns 58 today. Here's a PE video from a couple of years ago called "No Sympathy from The Devil."



Jim Carroll would have been 69 today, but nine years ago he became a person who died.



And on this day in 1779, one-hit wonder Francis Scott Key was born. Here are James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett from Metalica doing Key's big song.


Also, happy birthday to:
Jerry Garcia
Ramblin' Jack Elliott
Robert Cray
Coolio
Tommy Brolin
