DON HENLEY: His 70th Birthday Bash is this Saturday
Don Henley has another big show this Saturday -- his 70th birthday bash at the American Airlines Center in his hometown of Dallas.
He'll be joined by Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, Stevie Nicks and Patty Smyth. When asked how the show came about, Don got right to the point.
"I guess you could say that I assume it came about because my parents decided to have unprotected sex back in October of 1946. That's how we got here today."
CARLOS SANTANA -- Happy 70th birthday to the guitar legend
Carlos Santana celebrates a milestone birthday today (Thursday) as he turns 70.
It comes at a good time in his schedule as he's on a break from his summer tour, which starts up again on August 4th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Next week, he releases a new album, Power of Peace.
Carlos has had a legendary career with numerous awards, including being the only artist in history to win both Record of the Year at the Grammys (for "Smooth" in 1999) and the Latin Grammy (for "Corazón Espinado" in 2000). He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, but at the end of the day, it's not the awards that keeps him going.
"I do what I do and if they give me something that's a nice surprise you know. But it's not something that I tripped on because it really doesn't mean that much to me. What means a lot to me is everyday I go into a concert and making people receive a spiritual orgasm. That's what I'm into. The other stuff I'm grateful but I'm not really tripping on it.
