“Can’t freeze this” haiku:

Feb. 1 birthdays: Don Everly (1937), Rick James (1948), Mike Campbell (1954), Exene Cervenka (1956), Lisa Marie Presley (1968)

Don Everly, half
Of a national treasure
Vocal dream, come true

Hammer stole his riff
But James freakin’ outfunked all
MC? Can’t touch Rick

Rick Campbell breaks hearts
With killer writing, guitars
Tom Petty’s main man

LA punk power
“Desperate, get used to it”
Exene marked the spot

Only Elvis child
Soft heart for good causes, used
Fame to help others

February 1st
A hot start for this cold month
Music to warm us
