Did you know that Mike Oldfield and Brian Eno have the same birthday, May 15.(Eno was born in 1948 while Oldfield was born in 1953) Also Janet Jackson used the "Tubular Bells (Theme from the Excorcist) for the title track to "Velvet Rope?" Also "Tubular Bells" was the first album released on Richard Branson's Virgin label.

Just saw a yes vote for Mike Oldfield which made me realize I haven't been to the guy's page yet. Surprised to see only 1 comment so far for Mr. Tubular Bells.

Mike Oldfield only helped launch the Virgin Records empire with his massive selling debut "Tubular Bells" in 1973. He's still huge in Europe and his latest "Music of the Spheres"(2008) is brilliant!

You don't see many talented multi-instrumentalists like Mike Oldfield these days. Tubular Bells is a must hear for any musician or anyone interested in real music.
