MAJOR TOM & SGT. PEPPER: Born - November 21st & 22nd respectively. Well, if you happen to be an adult roughly the same age as me OR if you're just a music buff, you will get the reference to the names and songs and movie. Major Tom is a fictional character in David Bowie's songs "Space Oddity", "Ashes to Ashes" and "Hallo Spaceboy" beginning in 1969 through to the 1980's. Such amazing songs! There are references to Major Tom in a ton of other artists songs throughout those years but none as memorable as David Bowies.
As for Sgt. Pepper, c'mon people - a Beatles classic "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" released in 1967 and later made into a movie (1978) starring Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees. The guest list on this movie was unreal - Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Earth,Wind & Fire - the soundtrack alone is worth the $20 you'll pay at HMV. Better yet, buy the movie on DVD and spend a lazy Sunday watching this classic. You won't regret it.
