Happy Birthday To Jim Croce, Rod Stewart And Pat Benatar

What do Jim Croce, Rod Stewart and Pat Benatar have in common? They were all born on January 10th!

Jim Croce was born in Philadelphia in1943. Perhaps the best singer-songwriter of his time, Croce died in a plane crash with four others at the age of 30  on September 20, 1973. He left  behind a wife, a son and five beautiful studio albums.  It’s hard not to yearn for all the music Croce never wrote.

[photogallerylink id=75285 align=right] Pat Benatar was born as Patricia Mae Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953 in Brooklyn. Benatar was working as a bank teller in 1973 when a Liza Minnelli concert inspired her to quit her job and pursue a musical career. Thank goodness she did or else we’d never have the pleasure of hits like “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “Heartbreaker!” Happy Birthday Pat!
