Today Edd "Kookie" Byrnes turned 74 and Buddy Guy turned 71. Do you feel dated? Arnold Schwarzenegger, Paul Anka and Kate Bush aslo celebrated their birthdays today. Tomorrow, though, is a birthday we want to commemorate at the LNMC. Not that we want to snub J.K. Rowling or Fatboy Slim or R.E.M.'s drummer Bill Berry-- or even Gary Lewis (of Playboys fame)-- but tonight's song by Bauhaus goes out as a nice big happy birthday to Daniel Ash (also of Love and Rockets). After all, why wait for Halloween?

Can you help us out?
