Happy Birthday Today To Keith Richards…And That guy From The Cars
Of course the big birthday everybody is talking about today is Keith Richards turning 70! A very Happy Birthday to Keith, but also wanted to acknowledge Elliot Easton(guitarist for The Cars) who turns 60 today. The Cars of course the great rock band out of Boston that emerged from the new wave scene of the late 70′s/early 80′s, and turned out tons of hits over much of a decade. The Cars reunited in 2010, put out a new studio album, and did a short 10 city tour of the US and Canada in 2011. I ran into singer Ric Ocasek last summer at the Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck and he told me that another new album and tour is possible in the future.
