Alternative Milestones presents:

How can Lenny Kravitz, undeniably the coolest man on the planet, be turning 60 this week?  Crazy.

As far as this week’s other Alternative Milestones, looks like we’re spending a lot of time in the 80’s.  I’ve got several other birthdays to tell you about (Alanis Morissette, Dead Kennedys, Visage, Depeche Mode, Tom Morello, Simple Minds to name a few).

And we’ll have a couple of in memoriam milestones as well as we celebrate some performers who are no longer with us.

And of course a bunch of cool music release milestones.  I’m excited to get into it with you Thursday at 1PM!
