One Birthday and Two Anniversaries Today

I have been following Roger McGuinn since the Byrds hit the charts with Mr. Tambourine Man in 1965.  He enjoyed great success with that group and as a solo artist.  Below is Roger singing that Dylan song as a solo artist with a backup band.



The second New York City blackout happened on July 13, 1977.  I missed that one since I was living in New London, CT as I was working at Pfizer in nearby Groton.

The Live-Aid concert was July 13, 1985 in Philadelphia and London.  I taped much of it on a VCR while the audio was on WXRK.  It was a Saturday as I was working at the big New York Public Library on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street at the time.  It is hard to believe that it has been 30 years already.
