Steve Vai: Spiritual Axemaster [Rock Artist Birthdays][VIDEOS]

Happy (belated) birthday to Steve Vai, who turned 52 earlier this week, born June 6, 1960.

There are so many amazing guitarists out there (Joe Satriani, female phenom Orianthi, Deep Purple's Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, and on and on), that for me personally it's pretty much impossible to choose "the best".

The Beast! [Rock Artist Birthdays][VIDEO]

John Bonham would have turned 64 years old today had he survived his rock 'n roll lifestyle, but I have a feeling that he'd still be able to dazzle on the drum kit.

Happy belated birthday to Joe Cocker, who turned 68 on Sunday. He was born on May 20, 1944, in West Riding of Yorkshire, England (yes, it's really called that. It's a subdivision of Yorkshire.  I didn't think anything could sound more English than "Yorkshire", but there you are).
