What Do 1895, 1958, and 1971 Have in Common?

     This post is dedicated to four individuals that have played a part in my musical upbringing.  Happy Birthday to the late Laurens Hammond and Vicki Peterson, Mary J. Blige, and Tom Rowlands!

Laurens Hammond - inventor of the Hammond organ.  A Whiter Shade of Pale courtesy of Procol Harum anyone?

Vicki Peterson - guitar and vocals for The Bangles.  Can you Walk Like an Egyptian?

Mary J. Blige - "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul".  This was during those early '90s years of late elementary school/early middle school for me.

Tom Rowlands - one of "The Chemical Brothers" and reminds me of the days of college.
