today, march 12, 2009 is james taylor's 61st birthday. it's was an incredibly busy and productive year for him, which included a successful tour with his "band of legends" (a concert of which pat was happy to attend), a new album (albeit of covers (no new material) - and of the same name), and an intimate appearance on the sundance channel's "spectacle" with elvis costello!
in addition to his music, james taylor also exercised his political voice and took the time to campaign on behalf of obama. not only did taylor (along with fellow 1960's era icons, the grateful dead) attend the president's inauguration, but performed as well!
happy birthday james taylor - here's to another productive year!
