It’s Aries season, y’all! And the first two weeks or so of the astrological sign is busy and auspicious for music history:
- DJ Premier‘s birthday was on the 21st
- Edward James “Son” House‘s birthday was on the 21st
- Damon Albarn‘s birthday was on the 23rd
- Chaka Khan‘s birthday was on the 23rd

The legendary Diana Ross turns 78 today. And if there’s one thing the most recent losses in the music world should remind us, it’s this: let’s love our legends and give them their flowers in life. Of course, Ms. Diana Ross has been behind some of the most beloved and oft-covered songs in music history.
Happy birthday, Ms. Ross! May there be many, many more!
