Although the title could be describing how I feel, now that my blog seems to be on the way towards 1000 views this year, it is actually the title of a song written by one of today’s birthday elite; Mr. Geddy Lee of the five-decade rockers Rush. Since 1968, Geddy Lee’s multi-instrumental involvement in Rush (along with guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neal Peart) have made this Canadian trio a long-time part of my collection. His mastery of playing bass AND keyboards for Rush are nothing short of spectacular and should be experienced at least once in your life…Happy birthday, Geddy…and many happy more!!
Today’s other birthday twins include late wrestling manager Captain Lou Albano (1933-2009), late journalist Peter Jennings (1938-2005), The Sopranos’ Tony Sirico (1942), REO Speedwagon keyboardist Neal Doughty (1946), Captain Callahan from the Police Academy movies, Leslie Easterbrook (1949), and director Ken Burns and Patti Scialfa (from The E-Street Band) both share Geddy Lee’s year of 1953.
Also on the list is former Whitesnake and Blue Murder guitarist John Sykes (1959), former WWE/WCW strongman Scott Steiner (1962), Baywatch‘s beauty Alexandra Paul (1963), country legend Martina McBride (1966), Apocalyptica cellist Paavo Lotjonen (can’t say enough about them LOL) was born in 1968, and actors Wil Wheaton (1972), Stephen Dorff (1973) and Allison Mack (“Chloe” from Smallville) finishes the list, born in 1982.
Three (3) days until Mayhem…more on that to come…
