Get a load of this cusp

Tattoo you: The Libra sign
Today's Birthday Band members are Libras, but just barely.  September 23 is the first day in the seventh sign of the zodiac. We are on the cusp, as they say in the horoscope game. That may be why the description of Libras found on whispers not a hint of the greatness we are about to witness. Quite the contrary:

Their cast of mind is artistic rather than intellectual, though they are usually too moderate and well balanced to be avant garde in any artistic endeavor.

Perhaps the quibble will be over the term avant garde, because we are absolutely flush with artistic genius on this day.  Three of the greatest musicians in their respective genres have September 23 birthdays: John Coltrane, Ray Charles and Bruce Springsteen. How great is that?

John Coltrane (1926-1967): Jazz musician, composer
LP classics: Giant Steps, A Love Supreme, My Favorite Things

Ray Charles (1930-2004): Singer
Georgia on My Mind, I Can’t Stop Loving You, Crying Time

Les McCann (1935): Singer, pianist
Compared to What, Bang Bang!, Cold Duck

Steve Boone (1943): Bass, The Lovin' Spoonful
Do You Believe in Magic, Daydream, Summer in the City

Julio Iglesias (1943): Singer (60 LPs, 5 languages)
To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before (with Willie Nelson)

Ronald Bushy (1945): Drums, Iron Butterfly

Bruce Springsteen (1949): Rock musician, E-Street Band

  1. the Libras have it, it's a great sign to be born under..we are also easy going, fair, fashionable, romantics, and like our lives to be in balance, and love life.
    John Coltrane, Ray Charles,and Bruce, all great musicians, born under a GOOD sign.....
