It's a trilogy of birthdays today, and quite a diverse spread !   First, happy birthday to the late Pete Ham, founder of Badfinger, who would have been 69 today.  Second, happy wishes to Kate Pierson, founding member and big, busty redhead of the B-52's ... she's 68 today.  Finally, happy b-day to Ace Frehley of KISS ....he's the youngster of the group at 65 today ...  and wow, does HE look different !!

So happy birthdays all around today ...  and thanks for the memories and great music !
