Here comes the bride! / There goes a Mother! / Who's been on E Street the longest?

10/27/1964 (53 years ago today) - 31 year old Salvatore Philip Bono married 19 year old Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere -- For a while they had an act together calling themselves Caeser and Cleo; success didn't come their way, however, until changing their performance names to Sonny and Cher -- The union lasted 12 years...

10/27/1977 (40 years ago today) - A founding member of Little Feat who also worked closely with Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention during their very influential early years, is convicted of sexual assault on a child -- Roy Estrada would serve six years in prison on this charge, but the story doesn't end here; in January 2012, he pleaded guilty to "continuous sexual child abuse" from back in March 2008 -- There's a plea bargain agreement, which ends with Roy sentenced to 25 years in prison and no chance at parole. An ugly and gruesome story indeed.

10/27/1949 - Happy Birthday to bassist Garry Tallent, 68 years old today -- Garry's been playing with Bruce Springsteen longer than anyone else in the E Street entourage, dating all the way back to Bruce's earliest outfits like the {pseudo} legendary Dr. Zoom and The Sonic Boom band -- Musical roots: Garry played tuba in high school (that's him on "Wild Billy's Circus Story" from the amazing and truly classic "The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle" album), but of course, what he really wanted to do was rock out like his heroes Paul McCartney and Bill Wyman, and do we really need to point out that, career-wise, things have gone rather well?
