• Happy Birthday + A More Inquisitive Survey

    9 Jan 2010, 00:10 by Ennish

    First of all, I'd like to say Happy Birthday to some musicians/singers that have been important to my life thus far:

    1. Elvis Presley (would have been 75) - Grew up listening to his music quite a lot via the radio, my dad playing his stuff on the guitar (he's a big fan of Elvis), and putting the Lilo and Stitch Original Soundtrack on repeat when I got it back in 2002. I wouldn't call myself a fan, but I greatly admire all that he's done and how he changed not just rock 'n roll, but music as we know it. I even did a project on him back in middle school thanks to the influence my parents and the CD put upon me. He's also been greatly admired by...

    2. David Bowie (63) - Ah. Bowie. If it weren't for those two concerts I saw on TV this past summer, a couple of interviews on YouTube, and my dad constantly strumming the opening chords to Space Oddity, I wouldn't be writing this right now. He's been a great inspiration and hero to me ever since I got into him back in September. …
