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...

The College of Rock and Roll Knowledge with Paul Simon and 3 others1 year ago

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..."

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

Kenny's 20-yard shuttle was the second quickest among safeties.

Jarmal Porter I can't wait to see Kenny back on the field this year and pick up where he left off and become an All-Pro WHO DAT
Chris Melton He has the right attitude and toughness we need!! WHO DAT 4 LIFER
Jim Holder Who ever controls this page is in love with Kenny. Always talk about this guy when he hasn't proved anything. More talk about him than drew breeze on this page. Crazy..
Kori Drury Bengals fan here. I remember that draft we were supposed to get Kenny I was really hoping for him and you guys grabbed him off the board. So disappointing. One of my favorite players in football ! Saints are my second favorite team so it all works out. Who Dey and WHO DAT
Jarmal Porter He's far from being a bust in fact he's the reason our defense did pretty decent last year so him being a bust no way no how
David Patin Over rated no doubt can't cover the back end. That's why they call it safety !
Douglas Tadevich Hope he matures a bit in the offseason....
Sheila Tuilaepa
Jimmy Carbo 38" vertical?? Hopefully that's full pads.
Dwayne Netter No instincts, no range, all he can do is hit. No thanks
Lonny Becnel played really good this year
Joshua Doucet How are you a safety with no interceptions

Michael Thomas's NFL Combine performance by the numbers.

Antonio Corona I'll gladly change all that for a starting guard, Ingram needs to get going.
Sonny Tim Mcquire High Five & hopefully in the off season that we can get a Solid top 10 Defense together & revamp the offense & get some behind the scenes strategy for game day...7-9 records ain't pro-style ball! Anyhow Prayers to all & Roll Tide & Go Saints! 📚📚📖📖
Jarmal Porter And the best part is he's gonna get better each year
John Valois 😂 come on man. You coulda used a better picture bahahaha
Jeremy Wheeler Fumbles the ball at key moments...
Jason Hawthorne We just need him to catch and run
Terry Sonnier The future of the saints awesome
Larry S Thompson Saints love Ohio state players

Larry S Thompson Go Ohio state who Dat
Jan Hiestand 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Betty Lostetter Michael, since I saw you in practice I realized that my Saints have another star player for us to look up to! I followed you all last season, even got a shirt made with your name and number!! You did so well and I was proud of your accomplishment!! And then I found out on Google that you have the SAME BIRTHDAY as I do!! Happy Birthday on March 3rd ( the only difference is that you will be celebrating your 24th and I will be celebrating my 81st!! I'm definitely proud of you, my boy!!!!!!
Nathaniel BlackDynomite Williams We need to get Drew protection. The O-line collapse to fast causing him to scramble. If we can get him more time, he will be unstoppable. 8 years is too long between Super Bowls. Also, we need to use the quick snap in the red zone like 2008-2009
Mike Tillman ILB Ruben Foster...Don't bs this year....if not the best PASS RUSHER on da board instantly up grade our D cam can do it alone.....Ps give Farley da money he's worth it
Levi Hyswick Definitely one of the best rookies we've drafted in a while. Props to the coaches. But now we gotta focus of defence in the next draft
Scott Reilly Defense Coach!!!!! We NEED defense, have you not been watching?
Christian Comstock The absolutely only thing new Orleans saints can be proud about because their record sure doesn't show it.
Kevin Neff Now. Get a Qb to sit behind Brees for 1-2 more seasons, with Thomas, Snead, if we still have Cooks by the draft, and we have the offense established. Defense. Defense. Defense is what we need. I just have this feeling about this year. Last year felt like 08. Kinda in games, but just something was off. Then 09, bam. I got a feeling we are due to at least compete. How would a NE vs NO suberbowl be. Ratings bonanza. Then both retire, he and Brady. Storybook.
Arnold Williams This Season Needs To Start Early I Wanna See Wat We Got Let's Go Michael Thomas Who Dat!!
Joel Billeaudeaux Knew he would excel.

The NFL Combine kicks off next week!

We look back at our guys' Combine experiences.

Rasmus L. Hausted Remember to look outside the combine, the Real talent is out there, diamond in the rough..
James Gagner The Combine can we fast forward to schedule release
Nick Patton Gonna pick up Cutler?
Eloris Lori Williamspresley We LOVE you guys!
Tony McKinnon Watson, the QB from Clemson, I see has been invited to the Saints combine. Clemson plays a "pro set", so take a close look at him. Could be another "diamond in the rough" like Dak Prescott from the SEC and did very well for Dallas. Watson could very well be the heir apparent to Brees, when the time comes.
Vivian Madison Snead 1V you did that
Brinny Gatewood Who dat?!
Jamie DeJean Willie Snead!
Aaron Bogdan Willie Snead!

Thomas Johnson No for the love of god draft defense , every pick . If you draft anything other than defense pick a replacement for Drew, he can't play forever . Let's face it he's the only reason we've had any success.
Josh Threeton Anytime I see #87, I think of the legendary Joe Horn. Miss that cat!
Jeremiah Jordan We need to keep TLL around! Talk about getting Patterson... NO! I'm sure TLL will learn from his few mistakes and get better. He's a talent that we need to utilize!
Mike Briseno Focus on defense in the draft and try building a better O Line for Drew and we'll take the division.
Chris Bozenski I like these uniforms the best, but the helmet doesn't go with it.
Nick Tolson Keepin' my faith in the Black and Gold! Can't wait to see what happens next season! ⚜️⚜️
Angela Marie Nemec I have this special feeling, very special feeling!!! Who Dat!!!!! <3
Chris Lindeman Anybody else feel like this season is going to be something special? #WhoDat ⚜️
Chuck Riney Great Garret Grayson out the behind Drew this year. I truly believe he it the next Drew Brees given the chance. Let Luke go and work with a younger replacement. Oh fix that defense, fire Dennis Allen, trade Delvin Breaux. Draft the best DE available fist then 2 quick corners and ever LB you can grab
Chris Kirk Those thin arms look like the magicak arms of drew brees'
Micheal Darren Prince Nope I'll wait to see how we stack up on defense. Hopefully we Coach up right. Wait and see.
Raymond Warren Houde just going to be another dud for the Saints. we hear the same thing year after year...
Darwin LouizianaMade Brookins Jr. Caint wait!! I got saints gear piled up caint wait tuh suit up in da state of Texas who DAT!

Nancy Giesse Take a close look at Carlos Henderson & Trent Taylor: 2 excellent players from La Tech!!!!!
Ashley Hamilton Rivers from YSU is fast, smart, strong, and brings agility to this DE position.
Shelby T Mitchell Yeah as hope that they can get back to the playoffs and Super Bowl!
Andrew Carlson Sidney Jones +Hassan Reddick +Evan Engram +Marcus Williams +Isaac Asiata +Tarik Cohen
Gannon DeShong What do we need more a corner or a DE?
