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...

Keith Waye Happy Birthday Mr Garfunkel. Please sing 'Second Avenue' for me. "I can still see you standing There on the third floor landing...."

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

The undrafted rookie came into his own as the season progressed.

David Anderson Ever since we hired the assistant special teams coach, O'Dea I believe? Anyway Lutz didn't have any more blocked kicks and made something like 35 consecutive kicks (including PATs) He ended the season 28/34 which isn't bad by any means. I'm just glad we finally have a kicker who can hit it from 50+. I'm super optimistic about his future.
Chad Conduff He did a good job. Has a ton of distance, and was decently accurate. Hopefully they stick with him.
Ross Heyward Rookies make mistakes,that's how players learn to be great. I see a bright future for this kid
Josh Sonter Wil has shown some real talent! I'd love to see him as a Saint in 10 years time!
Kenn Kerr Definitely got better and better as the year went on and finishing the year with 13 in a row was strong! Lutz set the record for the most field goals made by a rookie in franchise history (28) beating Tom Dempsey's long standing record.
Steven Spears I put him on my fantasy team just because he played for the saints, when I had him I don't think he ever missed. I hope the saints stick with him
Thomas Kirschenheuter Lutz the putz. He is garbage. Only kicker I've seen hit a worm 30 yards away. Literally any kicker coming out of college and some out of high school will be better.
Charlie Horton This rookie was called a 💎 in the rough when he was picked up. The rough has been hewn off his rookie year. All you haters and negative Nellies better watch it, you want to run off this young man and one of the other teams who were talking to him will snap him up and you'll regret the hate and negativity. Shut your mouth or come this spring and see if you can kick better......thought not!
Robert Leaman Looks like we have our kicker of the future. He was in a zone at the the end of season. But his growing pains were very costly.
Jake Wilson Good kid. Looking forward to seeing him improve in the next season.
Warren Martin Jr. I think he will win a couple of games for the Saints next season.
Joseph Jones Great job Will Lutz, great coaching call Coach Payton. Love my Saints, Who Dat for life!
Betts Hixon Just love it when my Saints Go Marching In, I will always be in that number...
Keith Turing If he keeps improving, im going to become a fan....but I was at the broncos game and that's hard to forget lol
Tony McKinnon We haven't been this good (at this position) since Saint Mort left us.
Vernon A. Joseph Wil lutz I feel is going to be our morten Anderson 2.0 for years to come..watch and see who dat
Adrian Zamora Def looking forward to seeing him punt everytime we are in possession
Chance Webb Too bad he only cost the saints 4 games
Casey Kirk Cost us two early games though!
Zavier Knight I love Lutz
Evan Maurus He's a keeper.
Bill Long Thanks Bill Parcells., who told Payton about him.
Willie Law Who cares Atlanta is in the superbowl
Keith Modlinski i love this kid and he will be the next ventateri
Kevin Cooney Lets hope he continues to grow next season

Drew is off to Orlando!

Cj Lewis So disrespectful, Drew should have been there outright, not as a replacement, but because he was the only Qb to pass for 5000+ in the regular season, his 5th career wise.
Mark Carpenter Nice, but he was still overlooked initially which to me was a slap in the face considering his numbers this year.
Kimberly Williams Good, I was having Saints withdrawals!
Dak Ramen Them saint fans have something to cheer for now 😂

Amanda Mccommon He shouldn't be an alternate. WHO DAT!
