9:30 Coffee Break: Rocking Redheads

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Last night at the Oscars, Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne took home the trophies for Best Actress and Best Actor — Moore for her performance as a 50-year-old with early onset Alzheimer's in Still Alice and Redmayne for his portrayal of a young Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Coincidentally, Moore and Redmayne both have a ruddy complexion and ginger hair; as such, the Oscars proved to be a big night for redheads.

And that's why for today's Coffee Break, we'd like to continue the celebration by recognizing those redheads in the world of rock. What songs would you like to hear from musicians who have red hair? Send us your request.
