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...

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

"Getting into next year, getting back and getting healthy and adding a few new pieces, I think we’ll be a much improved defense."

Levi Hyswick Better have a better defence. Hell even if our defence ranked in the middle of the league, with a number 1 offence we would easily make playoffs every season
Brad White Really? My God, the Saints front office have ignored defense for years and now they're paying a dear price for that neglect. They need to draft well and pick a few solid free agent players on defense.
Chris Lindeman ABSOLUTELY! If you're a saints fan, you could tell how much we've improved in the past year on defense. A few more key players and we will be a top 10 defensive team and that's no lie. We just need to clean up when our defense is playing good , our offense can't score, and when our offense is on fire, our defense can't stop giving up points. But when they both play correct, there is no stopping the Saints. This year will be something special! #whodat⚜️
Chuck Riney Dennis Allen needs replaced, no way in hell is he a fair defensive coordinator. He's not even a good football coach for a Pop Warner team
Chad Gaudet Allen has evaluated and converted this D from the Rob Ryan system and had made improvements, some more playmakers and depth should get them to the Super Bowl against Patriots!
Jared Marceaux A few pieces how about entire new defense. Drew Brees should have at least 2 more Championship rings. Top 5 offense his entire career in New Orleans. Bottom 5 defense through out same period.
Don Steffen I think Allen has a plan look what the Raiders have become that was his choices. A few pieces and we are right back in the mix.
Max Taunton Be for u blame the coach u have to have the right players it the same in high school if do not have the right players then an stay healthy an plus if fire Allen who are u goning to get an if he was going to be fired don't u thank Payton would have done that that when he fired the orthers get a grip get the players first an stay healthy get grip tired of herring this cut down junk if any body thanks thay can do better go put in for the job
Jimmi Stepanik Yes there were a handful of injuries last season but (excluding PJ Williams & Rankins) we had starters in who've played for our team before. Anthony, Breaux, Ellerbe have all played their fair share. Ellerbe will be 33 years old & has play 9 games for us in 3 seasons. Dump him. Pj Williams 2 starts in 2 years. Breaux, yes banged up this year, but allowed even 10 TDs on his "good" 2015 debut. Crawley was a rookie this year & started 7 games & got torched on all of them including the game losing 2pt conversion against the raiders offense. Don't care to keep him. Sterling Moore, in my opinion don't care to keep him. He was whatever. Our DBs are a HUGE issue. All but Bell & Vaccaro are reliable. Laurentis, yet against another bad FA pick up for us. Similar to browner, k.lewis, champ bailey, spiller, fleener, bryd pick ups. We need to really question these moves that are coming from the GM Loomis. I'd say give Breaux one more healthy year to prove himself. Draft heavy on the DL & CB (especially if we don't resign Fairely). Cam & Rankins will need major help. Wait for Kikaha's OLB/DE return to health. Re-evaluate Stephone Anthony as an OLB since Robertson took his MLB job. Pick up a FA corner like Bouye or Kirkpatrick & sign a vet rusher like Ware, Dumerville, or JPP to school these young bucks. Drop Bryd after June 1st to save 8.3M in cap space. Start Von Bell or draft another safety to create competition. Draft a LG or figure out what the hell were doing with A.Peat on the O-line.
Luther Guin depth is so important because of the injuries. Last year we had no one to adequately take over for the people who went down.
Courtland Samuels Draft DE Solomon Thomas/ or Derek Barnett 1st round. Draft CB Quincy Wilson/ or any one of those CB that fall out the first round in the 2nd round (its a deep position this draft). 3rd round get another CB, the rest of the draft should be defense. Move Stephon Anthony back to MLB, move Craig Robinson to OLB and resign Nick Fairly. Use that free agency money to get a Guard and things will be good. It shouldn't be hard to do at all.
Bles WhodatwopSr Penton I say the saints make the playoffs next year with a awesome offense and a solid defense
Perris Moore I actually like Dennis Allen . His adjustments were on point.
Jevin Stargell Man bring the fkn bounties back! Gregg Williams was a grown man!
Lola Jordan I still can't get over this guy coached Oakland and he had no insight as to how to beat them
Chase Millien I guarantee all of our defensive starters won't be healthy for a full year.
Danny Keith Phillips I would hope that they improve the defense, if not a 7-9 team is all we will ever amount to.
Chad Seibert Offense Sells Tickets, Defense wins Championships! That is All!!!!!! Go Saints
Jamey Ard It could only get better guys!!! But seriously let's go #whodat
Asad Mussarat Youshay Rizvi Double fingers crossed. Double Toes Crossed. Coercing Other people's hands crossed
Brad Giacona Kinda difficult to be much worse. But I wouldn't put it past the Saints to pull that one off.
Ronald Woods Sr. It ALL starts up front...DL needs push and apply PRESSURE!
Adam Jahn The line is pretty good with Jordan, Fairley, Rankins. Just need another solid pass rusher. Maybe Johnathan Allen or Derek Barnett.
Angela Marie Nemec Boom!!! yall here him!!!! I'm so excited for the season to begin!!!!!
Jason Johnson Say, If we reach Super Bowl and there id New England Patriots, Mane we can easily upset and hand them there first lost by us in Super Bowl History. We are 1-0 against them.
