Today's Tune: "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"
By Graham Bonnet

"The Blue Marble photo" of Earth, taken from Apollo 17 as it headed to our Moon.

Today is April 22, 2011, officially making it Earth Day. Earth Day was originally founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970. It is all about promoting awareness, protecting the environment, and saving this beautiful blue planet of ours.

This reminds me of a Bob Dylan song called "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue". More specifically, I think of the cover version by English (Born in Skegness, Lincolnshire) singer Graham Bonnet, released as a single in 1977. So, I've chosen that one for the 'Today's Tune'.

Bonnet, possessing one of the greatest rock voices of our time, replaced Ronnie James Dio as the lead singer of Rainbow a couple years later. He's also fronted the bands like The Marbles, Michael Schenker Group and Alcatrazz, when not working under his own name.
