Jan. 1, 1864 was the birthday of great photographer, gallery owner and art promoter Alfred Stieglitz (d. 1946). Stieglitz did more than any one individual for the position of photography as a medium fully worthy of artistic expression… His favorite subject and love of his life: Georgia O’Keeffe, ca. 1920 - gelatin silver print (Smithsonian Archives of American Art)

Very impressed by this man's perseverance...
۞ Freddie Mercury, was a British musician/singer/songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist & lyricist of the rock band Queen. As a performer, known for his flamboyant stage persona & powerful vocals. "I like people to go away from a Queen show feeling fully entertained, having had a good time. I think Queen songs are pure escapism, like going to see a good film, after that, they can go away and say that was great, and go back to their problems. I don't want to change the world with our music."

Shirley Temple Black, shown in 1935, went from being a child film star to a diplomatic career serving the United States in the United Nations and as an ambassador.
Shirley Temple was a ground breaking child star that inspired me at a young age. She was extremely talented for her age, and was a very good actress.
Shirley Temple: A fine example of the bigger they are, the bigger they stay. Once Hollywood's No. 1. movie star, child or otherwise, Temple grew up to become the U.S. ambassador to Ghana and, later, the former Czechoslovakia.
Shirley Temple as a child star in many song and dance movies, as well as classics dramatic movies. Very talented little girl. She grew up to be a U.N. ambassador; Shirley Temple Black.

http://newmusic.mynewsportal.net - Songbook of Blues music. Robert Johnson was the father of rock'n'roll. To bad those hell hounds were always on his trail.
Here is the "official music video" to the Robert Johnson classic blues song. http://realvj.com/2013/01/03/robert-johnson-robert-johnsons-cross-road-blues-1936/ #robertjohnson #blues #therealusa
According to folklore, Robert Johnson made a deal with the Devil in order to gain mastery of the guitar. Hell, no matter how he got it, the Mississippian has influenced pretty much every rock musician you love. Keith Richards said he was as good as the blues can get, Eric Clapton called him the most important blues musician that ever lived, and he's considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Supposedly poisoned at the age of 27 in 1938.
Robert Johnson- Crossroad Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938 ) was an American blues singer & musician. His landmark recordings from 1936–37 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, & songwriting talent. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including the Faustian myth that he sold his soul at a crossroads to achieve success. *from Wikipedia
Robert Johnson, Sweet Home Chicago. Johnson is recognized as a master of the blues, particularly of the Mississippi Delta blues style. He is credited by many rock musicians as an important influence; Eric Clapton has called Johnson "the most important blues singer that ever lived."
