Rock 'n roll birthdays this week include Sir Elton John, who turns 67.  Lady Soul Aretha Franklin turns 72 this week.

We're celebrating Elton John today with iHeartRadio's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 40th Anniversary Special tonight at 9:00 on BIG 95 KBGO and streaming coast-to-coast on our iHeartRadio app.  It's a rare sit down conversation with one of rock 'n roll's legendary stars.  We'll share conversation with Elton and feature some of the biggest songs from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

Aretha Franklin made her name as one of the premiere female soul voices in the 60s with hits like "Respect," "(You Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman," "Think" and many more.  Lady Soul continues to amaze audiences in 2014 at limited engagements she continues to play.
