No, Heather, it's Heathers turn
You say it's your birthday: Punk goddess Patti Smith turns 59 today. We thank her for helping drag us out of the disco era and adding real poetry into music. And two of the Monkees share a birthday. Davy Jones is 60 and Michael Nesmith is 63. Yeah, yeah, the Monkees aren't from the 80s. I beg to differ somewhat. Most children of the 80s grew up on Monkees reruns, and they did tour on their 20th anniversary back in 1986. I caught it in Clearwater. Great show. I save my final birthday wish for Tracey Ullman, 46, whose landmark comedy show in the late 80s helped launch The Simpsons.
