Today we are remembering the late Fred Lincoln 'Link' Wray, Jr. who passed away 10 years ago today on Nov. 5, 2005. Link was an American rock and roll guitarist, songwriter and vocalist who first came to popularity in the late 1950s.

Here is how part of how wikipedia describes him: "Building on the distorted electric guitar sound of early records, his 1958 instrumental hit "Rumble" by Link Wray and his Ray Men popularized "the power chord, the major modus operandi of modern rock guitarists", making possible "punk and heavy rock". Rolling Stone placed Wray at No....

"My Generation" is a song by the English rock band The Who, which became a hit and one of their most recognisable songs. The song was named the 11th greatest song by Rolling Stone magazine on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and 13th on VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Songs of Rock & Roll.

It's also part of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and is inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for "historical, artistic and significant" value. In 2009 it...

There are very few musicians / performers / writers / poets that we would call "American Treasures". One of the people we will call that has a birthday today.

Art Garfunkel, 1/2 of the singing duo "Tom and Jerry" who later went by the name Simon & Garfunkel is 74 years old today.

Art is one of those people who we could go on for days about, but it is best said in 4 words: He is Art Garfunkel.

If you could be at his birthday party tonight and he told...

Nick DiPalo His Breakaway album is one of my faves. Always the perfect album to "set the mood" back in the day. I'd ask him to sing, "I Believe When I fall in Love..."
Keith Waye Happy Birthday Mr Garfunkel. Please sing 'Second Avenue' for me. "I can still see you standing There on the third floor landing...."
Don Boyd Happy Birthday, Art!

Todays history lesson from The College of Rock and Roll Knowledge:

Julie Milton Modaressi Ke-Ke Shelton, here's some black rock & roll history, man!
Charlie Primerano I have a problem with memes like this that don't quote an authority or book. The most likely source appears to be the book "Thelonius Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original". While this practice certainly took place among black men (and continues), it is doubtful it was confined to or originated with jazz musicians and it likely started earlier than the 1940's. Men regardless of race, certainly addressed each other as "man" for centuries (e.g., "My good man"). In the context of race in America, the origins of claiming the status of "man" over "boy" go back to the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision of 1857. As the Monk book describes, in the 1940s, one black man calling another "man" in the presence of a white man could be interpreted as an act of defiance. That the use of this slang term grew in the post war period said more about the impatience of this new generation of black men than whether or not they played jazz.
Jeff N Debbie Simpson Musicians are so cool, man!
Rick Lewis I had no idea, man.
Albert Coburn it is demeaning to call anyone "boy" in a derogatory sense
Harold Norris Man!! Thats useful knowlege!!
Rob Gibson Makes you wonder about "Daddy-O".
Jeff Huff I call many black musicians sir and rightfully so...
Dianne Osborne Sharing
Richard Jallouk People had no respect for people of color , these were talented good hard working men ,musicians that deserved respect , glad they did that.
Lee Ann Troy Ya learn something new every day (If you're lucky.) I didn't know that.
Jon M Berry Makes one think about the old song "Mannish Boy"!
Cheralyn O'sullivan I didn't know that Why are WHITE people world so horrible to black people in any situation
Laine Wittmayer Gee lighten up Charlie, we get it man
Doris Angermund Yeah man <3
Peter Levine One day I found an old lady in the parking lot who was kneeled down and messing with her car tire, I quickly went over to ask if she needed help, to find out she was stuffing a loaf of bread under it. Maybe so she can run it over? , she looked up at me and yelled "MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS BOY!!! "
Charlz Ruggerio Who knew
Bill Wiltfang What did they call the ladies?
Randy Young Pretty straight forward eh!
Rick Anthony I first heard this claim on the Ken Burns documentary on Jazz.
Scott Allen man i say "man" a lot man
Bill Tristan And modern rap & hip-hop 'artists' have jumped back to square one by calling each other " boy".
Ken Stephens Another day, another nugget of trivia. Cool man!
Winnie Elkin Herzog Interesting

Angry Mark!

Steven Galahad Mom said I could be anything. So I want to be the guy in the comment section that gets a "like" from one of the New Orlean Saints team members. Here goes nothing!
Andy Nicholson Mark had a great year. You can't ask for much more than 1000 yd season and your QB throwing for 5000 yds. Need to fix that defense.
Matthew Bartee Keep him and HIghtower as the duo, they compete with one another and that makes them better.
Chris Melton Mark keep up the attitude makes you run better!! You are the BAYOU BEAST!! WHO DAT 4 LIFER
Louis Whodat Armstrong Angry Mark is a beast!
Austin Timothy Tramell Next year is gonna be amazing!!!
Alex Muñoz He plays good when he has to compete for his job title smh
Danny Malone If he's so good try to trade him and see what happens.
Danny Malone Cut him please
Tim Evans keep doing what you've been doing, Mark!
Todd Cohn Get rid of him.
Austin Tucker #AngryMark
Dave Antonelli who dat!

Not too shabby, rook.

James Sellers All the Boos when he was selected have quickly been erased... this kid is Legit!! The quiet storm must be proud to see him emerge and take the reigns, although they weren't on the team together, I believe Colston is quietly enjoying watching Thomas assume the mantle
Drosà Las Dràgas Other than the two fumbles during the Broncos game, Michael Thomas had a stellar year. New Orleans definitely knows how to pick up wide receivers drafted or not with Willie snead leading rookie receivers in 2015 to Michael doing the same in 2016. 2017 will need to be a statement season for our entire team. #WHODAT #WHODATNATION #WHODATLIFER #BLAKKGOLDMAFIA
Joseph Jones Great Player and going too be better and better. Please keep him a Saints, if someone else gets him he will beat our butts. Great Season Michael Thomas!
Ahmed Din Hes going to be a great player, quickly became my favorite player on the team! This kid is a BALLER!!!
Jace Paust he is going to amount to so much, more than what he already has! I hope he does this with the Saints! #WHODAT
Jon Fry They didn't even show his BEST catch against the 9ers when he pulled it off the DB's back lol. #WhoDat
Elricus Juanta Mcmorris Young man got juice. Hope he will be more better this season.
Andy Dickinson He's awesome! Which means the Saints will probably trade him before next season. :(
Andy Cook Yay!! Brees did this, Thomas did that. Still can't win a garbage division.
Colin Crawford I can't wait too see what he can do in the years to come untill he starts to ask for too much money and goes to another team
Fred Bush Straight up baller now can we get some cornerback and LB's like this.
Eric Begay ill be watching a home game next season all the way from Utah. hopefully watch the Pats vs. SAINTS!!! ⚜️WhoDat⚜️ 😎 🙏🏽🤘🏽👏🏽
Brian Ward Micheal Thomas is great saint got lucky when they pick him up he just a outstanding player
Alex Redfern This dude is ridiculous. Reminds me of a young Colston.
Cullen Lewis 😏
Rick Nelson Although we love Marques, he looks like the future.
Gladys Simpson Good job Micheal Thomas keep it up
Czar Marcainte Great job
Gene Biondi Flat out pro bowler and possibly MVP . Beast!!!!!
Anthony Moore Sr. he's tall 6'4" brees can see him

Nicole Carson Remember this date November 6, 2018. That's the date on which 33 senate seats, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 governorship's will be up for re-election. Put it on your calendar now and be prepared to be an informed voter. If you are worried, concerned, angry, disappointed about the direction the government is going this is the most effective way to make a change, stop complaining and start planning. Remember the president is only one cog in the government machine, and you can make effective change through voting for your local and state representatives, this is the check that can balance this situation. PLEASE COPY AND SHARE! and work for the candidates that serve our needs AND register and educate all voters. We have our work cut out for us@
Hope Falcon Love Willie! I met and spoke with him in Tampa, he is a fine young man! My grandson Ashton adores him! I think he is a terrific role model for the children.
Chuck Theaux Reliable, tough. Wouldn't be surprised to see a receiver traded for a draft pick if the price is right.
Vivian Madison Keep shining Snead IV,being part of the triple threat who DAT season is up next!!
James Sellers I can hear Cleveland and Carolina scouts and coaches getting an earful for letting him walk... this guy is a great story, and an awesome player
Pj Tarrant Everytime he's in the open field, my dad and I tell, "Free Willie!"

Despite injuries, the rookie made a big impact!

Chuck Theaux Great draft pick. Great character. Hope he stays healthy so we can see a whole year of great performance.
James Sellers Paired with Jordan and fairley, and 100% healthy, along with another pass rusher added to the fold, I see great things happening for our defensive front. Granted Fairley will need to match his production from last year, and he isn't known for consistency
Kendall Brown Keep Fairley. They're a great pair. Let Kruger walk and go after a Calais Campbell or a JPP and the line would be gold. And DRAFT OUT OF THE SEC!!!
Peace Love Happiness. Dear person reading this I hope your day has been going well, if not, I hope it gets better. You are an amazing person who will inspire others to do great things so keep up the hard work. I know you may feel unimportant or insecure at the moment but know that you are a beautiful human being inside, outside and you are important.
