Edward Elgar
Sir Edward Elgar
In ripping up the city street
With pounding marching Roman feet
He gets the blues from drinking wildly
Until the Vandals stood beside me.

Edward Elgar, British composer, was born today in 1857.

The Sack of Rome by the Vandals began on this day in 455.

Bo Diddley, American blues guitarist and singer, died today in 2008.
