    This is a tragic tale involving Rory Storm who was an English musician and vocalist. He was born in 1938 as Alan Caldwell in Liverpool but took the name Storm and became the singer and leader of a Liverpool band known as Rory Storm and the Hurricanes.

    The Everly Brothers

    The Everly Brothers

    The Everly Brothers were two real-life brothers Isaac Donald “Don” Everly and Phillip “Phil” Everly who played rock and roll songs with a kind of American country flair. They had lots of very touching songs which just made you want to sing along. They were best known for their steel-guitar playing and close harmony singing. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. The great harmony singing of the brothers strongly influenced other rock groups of the 1960s including Simon & Garfunkle, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles who developed their early singing styles doing performances using Everly covers.

    Robert Ackermann the Cannibal of Vienna

    Robert Ackermann the Cannibal of Vienna

    When Robert Ackermann was 19, he left his native city of Cologne, Germany and by August of 2007, he was staying in Vienna, Austria in short-term housing for the mentally ill and homeless that was run by a private charity. At the facility, he shared a room with Josef Schweiger who was 49 and had been living at the facility since June. It was amazing that Ackermann’s behavior and his feuds with his roommate didn’t alarm weekly social workers, but the neighbors on the family-filled tenement block were certainly worried about Ackermann’s behavior. They had argued with the disturbed Ackermann, had seen him crawling naked through the yard howling at the moon, or dumping what appeared to be blood from his window. They realized that this teen was quite dangerous.

    The Axeman of New Orleans

    On May 22, 1918 the world was still in the grips of WWI. In New Orleans, a barber named Andrew Maggio had just gotten his draft notice and decided that a night’s good drinking was in order. Returning home to the place Andrew shared with his brother, Jake, he noticed nothing unusual. He was also in no condition to determine if anything was amiss. Andrew and Jake’s rooms adjoined the home of their married brother, Joseph and his wife Catherine.

    It Was Easy Come, Easy Go

    It Was Easy Come, Easy Go

    The title simply refers to a popular song by Bobby Sherman, who came into this world as Robert Cabot Sherman, Jr. on July 22, 1943. When the world was crazy for teen idols, he caught the eye of many teen girls and became a teen idol through the late 1960s and into the early 1970s. He is a talented American singer, actor, and sometimes, songwriter. Knowing that he could sing and capture a girl’s heart only added to his charm.
