Is January the slowest month of the year? The letdown after Christmas might affect event schedules, and the winter weather doesn’t always perk people up.
However, it’s certainly not a slow month in the world of classic rock. 25 famous rock stars were born during the first month of the year.
Some were gone too soon. Elvis Presley, the King of Rock & Roll, was born on Jan. 8, 1935. He shares a birthday with the legendary David Bowie, who unfortunately passed just two days after his birthday in 2016.
Two MGK jocks, Andre Gardner and Tony Harris, even celebrate their birthdays on Jan. 14.
Throughout the month, 102.9 WMGK will pay tribute to a long list of rock stars on their respective birthdays.
