Happy Birthday to Larry Blackmon of Cameo!

Happy birthday to Larry Blackmon of the group Cameo, born May 24, 1956.

Numbers - the kind that have six zeroes on the end - have never been the motivation for Cameo. In 2009, however, numbers are very significant: this year marks the eve of the group's 35th anniversary. It was that many years ago that the New York-based band, led by drummer Larry Blackmon, debuted with a single called "Find My Way" on Chocolate City Records, a label managed by Cecil Holmes through Casablanca Records. Nine is another important number. That's how many lives Cameo has lived in the years since. Line-ups change, styles evolve, and record labels merge, but Cameo has maintained its core funkiness for four decades.
