July born musicians we must know to music well.
Isn’t music all about feeling and expressing? May it be Presley’s “can’t help falling in love” or the catchy pop song that you heard at your friend’s place. Music makes us feel, enhance, revisit and treasure.
This July is just more than your usual hassled rainy mornings at work, look at these amazing July born musicians whom we are so lucky to have to be born and existed.
1. Bon Scott ( born July 9, 1946 )
Bon Scott best known as a lead singer and lyricist in Australian rock band AC/DC.
This rock artist believes, “I ‘m 33…before AC/DC I’ve played in a lot of bands in Australia. You’re never too old to rock and roll.”
If you want to know in and out about “Highway to Hell” star, “The Last Highway: The Untold Story of Bon Scott and AC/DC’s Back in Black” a biographical is due for publication in late 2017.
2. Ronnie James Dio ( born July 10, 1942 )
Ronnie fronted numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven & Hell.
His medieval themed lyrics were straight out of inner gates of wisdom. Right from his debut in
Rainbow till his final days and last studio album in Heaven & Hell, Ronnie has managed to be a significant heavy metal singer.
“Sign of the horns” that has now become a gesture of music was popularised by him saying his grandmother used it to ward off the evil eyes.
Let’s hope his voice continues to guide the generations of head-bangers.
3. Chris Cornell ( born July 20, 1964 )
We know Cornell as the lead vocalist in Soundgarden and Audiosoave. Cornell’s recent death controversies have caused unrest in our hearts.
Chris Cornell, a Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist, composer and lyricist was among the pioneers of grunge movement. He had artistic vision to combine alternative rock with social conscious inculcating lyrics.
Oh Cornell! We hope your remembrance would always be in awe and may it foster change.

5. Slash ( born July 23, 1965 )
“Saul Hudson” whom we better know as Slash, lead guitarist of American rock band Guns N Roses saved the rock and roll of 80s.

“Sweet Child o’ Mine” is nothing but blood-curdling sweet.
