HAPPY BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY! 11-16-10
Today we celebrate Pattie Santos' (of the great San Francisco band It's A Beautiful Day) birthday. Today would have been her 61st birthday if she had not been killed in a car accident in 1989. Though It's a Beautiful Day is commonly grouped with such bands as the Grateful Dead and the Jefferson Airplane due to their time and location and management, their best work (their catalog can be spotty) feels more akin to the likes of Scott Walker and Roxy Music and were perhaps even an inspiration to such bands as later fellow Californian's X.
