Happy Birthday, Eric Johnson!
On Wednesday, August 17, 2022, one of my favorite guitarists, Eric Johnson, will turn 68 years old.I was first introduced to the music of Johnson in 1990 by an employee at a local cable television station I interned at during my senior year of high school. That was the year Johnson, then 35/36 years old, released his breakthrough second album, Ah Via Musicom, which achieved the distinction of having three instrumental songs reach the American Top Ten.
Every one of Johnson's albums showcases his incredible electric guitar wizardry and his soft-spoken heartfelt vocals. His latest albums are The Book of Making and Yesterday Meets Today.

Nichelle Nichols (1932-2022)
A true woman of the future, in more ways than one, both onscreen and off.
A real icon, inspiration, and role model for women, minorities, and all those who dared to dream.
May her legacy live long and prosper, to the final frontier and beyond.
