We don’t really go way back for this Wayback Wednesday!  April 29th marks the 73rd birthday of the great Tommy James. Born Thomas Jackson in Dayton, Ohio, Tommy grew up in Niles, Michigan. These days he’s a resident of Cedar Grove, New Jersey. Like a number of other artists, Tommy has taken to doing live videos on his You Tube channel, while in self quarantine.

Just last week, Tommy provided this week’s Wayback Wednesday video of one of his biggest hits….Crystal Blue Persuasion. Enjoy…as we celebrate Tommy’s birthday!
