Twenty-five years ago today in Oakland

…Philippe Wynne, a former lead singer of The Spinners, died of a heart attack while on stage in Oakland, California. Read it and weep on Just Another Blog (from L.A.). It’s also my dear cousin Kristel’s 30th BD. If JABLA is right, her birthday is the same day four Palestinian guerrillas stormed the Egyptian Embassy in Ankara, Turkey, killing two guards and taking some 20 hostages. (The guerrillas surrendered 45 hours later.)
