Happy Birthday to Ringo (and Greg)


Just a quick note to wish happy birthdays to two of my favorite drummers.

Hmmmm….two masterful drummers born on the same day.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Mr. Richard Starkey, aka Ringo Starr, turns 70 today.  He’s still playing, and god love him for it.  He played for some group that was around in the sixties.

It’s also the birthday of The Long Afternoon’s very own beat-all, Greg Elliott.  He isn’t 70 yet, but is still playing.  And god love him for it!  (Full disclosure:  In addition to TLA, Greg plays with Cliff Turner’s Rock and Soul Revue.)

And if you’re in State College, be sure to come see Greg in action at Chronic Town on July 10.  Maybe we’ll even have some cake!
