Today (5/30) is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway’s birthday. We know him better as Cee Lo Green. His first big hit was “Crazy” and it came as part of the duo Gnarls Barkley. DJ Danger Mouse is the other half. Why would someone want to be referred to as Danger Mouse? Anyway, Cee Lo had a huge solo hit that was all about dropping “F” bombs. “F**k You” went to #1 worldwide. The radio version “Forget You” is the one you hear on the Arch. You can see Cee Lo on TV as a vocal coach on NBC’s The Voice. Today is also the birthday of former baseball star Manny Ramirez. Manny played most of his career with the Boston Red Sox and was named the World Series MVP when the Sox swept our Cardinals in 2004. His 28 post-season home runs are the most by any player in Major League Baseball history. Ramirez was born in Albert Pujols’ home town of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. There’s only 2 years difference between Cee Lo and Manny. So who’s older?
