A diverse quartet

Four Oct. 6 birthdays, probably all deserving more than a quick hit. But here goes.

Millie Small, my first
Taste of pre-reggae “bluebeat””
“My Boy Lollipop”

Matthew Sweet, a fave,
Hot power pop, guitar rock
Hangs with Bangles, too

David Hidalgo
A mainstay of Los Lobos
May the wolf survive!

Tommy Stinson, bass
In Replacements, G ‘n’ R,
Soul Asylum, too
