Two music legends have birthdays this week.
Bruce Springsteen was born September 23, 1949, which would make him 59. But that hasn't seemed to slow "The Boss" down a bit; he still tours with the E Street Band, and is active as ever.
Ray Charles was also born September 23. If he were still alive, he would be 78. He passed away June 10, 2004.
One reason I've always admired Ray Charles is because, like me, blindness didn't stop him from living his dream. But his diversity inmusic was also fascinating to me. From blues to rock to country, Ray had a big influence on just about every music genre imaginable.
Enjoy the music!
