129 Going To The Chapel Of LoveThere are June brides, and then there are those that tie the knot on Valentine’s Day. At the count of three, let’s all say it together. One, two, three….Awwwwwww.

And some of our favorite rock stars are celebrating a wedding anniversary today…or making alimony payments. Let’s take a trip down memory, or lover’s, lane.

In 1984 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elton John[/lastfm] married Renate Blauel, studio engineer in Sydney, Australia. What a difference a couple of decades makes. Elton and his life partner David Furnish had a baby not long ago.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mark Knopfler[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dire Straits[/lastfm] married Kitty Aldridge. It was his third trip down the aisle, but this one seems to be working for him.

In 1979 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lou Reed[/lastfm] married Sylvia Morales in Greenwich Village in New York City. It was Lou’s second try, and it actually lasted until 1994. She was an alleged stripper and part-time dominatrix. Don’t know her other hobbies. But now Lou is very happy with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Laurie Anderson[/lastfm], and who wouldn’t be because she is one the coolest, nicest and talented people in the universe. Way to go, Lou.

In 1981 Mike Barson of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Madness[/lastfm] married his girlfriend Sandra Wilson. Last heard from they are living in Holland with their two sons.

In 1984 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Brian Setzer[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]the Stray Cats[/lastfm] married Deanna Morgan. That was the first of three for Brian and lasted till 1992. He’s not known for his romantic love songs, but he’s a heck of a good guitarist. This is as romantic as it gets for Brian.

in 1992 Jon Farriss of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]INXS[/lastfm] married actress Leslie Bega. They divorced in 1999.

And in 2008 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Liam Gallagher[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Oasis[/lastfm], and now [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beady Eye[/lastfm], married singer Nicole Appleton in London. They are still married, and in fact have been together for ten years. But Liam did divorce his brother Noel.

So I hope you got your roses and heart shaped box of fine hand crafted chocolates and have a wonderful romantic Valentine’s Day. The rest of us will just settle for the candy.
