Ure's versatile talent and contributions to music have left an indelible mark, earning him recognition and respect in the industry.

Charlotte Caffey

OCT 21: Happy birthday to Charlotte Caffey, born today in 1953! The talented musician and songwriter is best known as the guitarist and one of the founding members of the iconic all-female rock band The Go-Go's. The Go-Go's were a significant part of the 1980s music scene and helped pave the way for women in rock and pop music.

The Go-Go's are known for hits like "Our Lips Are Sealed," "We Got the Beat," "Vacation," and "Head Over Heels." These songs became anthems of the new wave and pop-punk movements of the era.
