Presty the DJ for May 29

This is more a pop than rock anniversary: One of the two funniest songs Johnny Cash performed, “One Piece at a Time,” hit number 29 today in 1976:

Birthdays start with Gary Brooker of Procol Harum:

Bassist Mike Porcaro of Toto:

Drummer Mel Gaynor of Simple Minds:

Here is a varied career: David Palmer sang for Steely Dan …

Today is also the anniversary of the death of Jeff Buckley, who drowned today in 1997:

Today is also Wisconsin’s birthday. The Wisconsin Territory was shrunken down to the State of Wisconsin on May 29, 1848. So listen to some Wisconsin rock music today.
