In 1965, with Sonny Bono, she sang the words, “I Got You Babe,” and for decades, like a chameleon CHER has continued to dazzle us with her ability to keep the music alive, during an incredible career. This week (May 20) Cher celebrates her 75th birthday. Ironically, her 1989 hit posed the question “If I Could Turn Back Time,” but she has gracefully managed to embrace time, as ……the beat goes on!
We will always look at PETE TOWNSHEND of THE WHO, as one of the most celebrated guitarists, and songwriters of ‘our generation’, as he ushers in birthday number 76 (May 19). And, the year 1972 introduced us to another british singer/ songwriter, ALBERT HAMMOND, who graced our Top 40, with a #5 song, proclaiming “It Never Rains In Southern California.”
