Judging by the tone of his autobiography, it’s debatable whether Ginger Baker ever feels completely happy. But that shouldn’t prevent us from wishing him a happy birthday today, on his 71st, nevertheless.
Today is Jerry Augustyniak’s 52nd birthday. He played drums with 10,000 Maniacs. I still love the song “Hey Jack Keroac” from In My Tribe. Beautiful album. It provided a soundtrack to a brief relationship I was involved with in the mid-’80s.
