Start        Birth Years        Birthstars        Constellations

Where were the teenagers whose embrace of Elvis's raw sexual energy had seemed so revolutionary back in 1956? In 1958, they were listening to records like Purple People Eater and The Chipmunk Song. No, it wasn't men with names like Como and Boone who knocked the rock and roll revolution subtly off course in the year of your birth -- it was men with names like David Seville and Sheb Wooley, and Chipmunks with names like Simon, Theodore, and Alvin. All they wanted was to get some laughs and sell some records, but the enthusiasm with which America embraced the stars of the constellation Novelty Merchant sapped the rock and roll revolution of its intensity. And it was that, along with the egalitarian spirit of the Memphis Draft Board, that sapped Elvis Presley of his, setting the popstrological firmament on a path that would create a real necessity for the eventual British Invasion. Call it disappointing or embarrassing, if you must, to have been born in a year when the average American record buyer did more damage to Elvis than Pat Boone ever did. But you could also take it as a challenge, setting for yourself the goal of supporting causes that truly matter, even when everyone else in your micro-generation tells you to relax and have fun.
