9/7/1978 (39 years ago today) – The band never really sounded the same without him: On this date, the bona-fide-fantastic original drummer for The Who, Keith Moon, died from an overdose of the prescription medicine heminevrin, which he was taking to battle his alcohol addiction. There’s no doubt he left his mark on every Who album and single from their 1965 debut “My Generation” all the way up to “Who Are You” (1978), which was released a mere two weeks before he passed away.

9/7/1951 – Happy Birthday to a true punk rock pioneer, the founding member and lead vocalist/guitarist/singer-songwriter for The Pretenders, let’s give it up for the occasionally intimidating but always totally convincing Chrissie Hynde, 66 years old today — Arguably tops the list of the most taken-for-granted women artists of the last 50 years — Seriously, The Pretenders 1980 debut LP alone is still capable of blowing your little rock brains out! Then there’s her 2015 bio “Reckless”, the tales within so sordidly real they’re enough to make you question why people choose “show-biz” as a way of life. She’s an avid animal activist, plus she stole the show with her appearance on “Friends”. And, of course, that voice! We love Chrissie Hynde, we really do…
