Happy 60th birthday Alex Lifeson!
UPDATE - 8/28@9:33AM: Gibson.com posted this article to their website on Monday as a tribute to Alex on his 60th birthday.
UPDATE - 8/27@8:12AM: Alex is the featured celebrity birthday in today's Toronto Sun (thanks jupeguyowensound).
On this day back in 1953, our favorite guitarist - Alexandar Zivojinovich (aka Alex Lifeson) - was born in Fernie, British Columbia. He turns the big six-oh today which catches him up with his bandmates; Alex is the youngest member of Rush, being born about a month after Geddy Lee and just under a year after Neil. In honor of this occasion here's some video of a much younger (and harrier) Alex arguing with his parents over his future as a musician back in 1972. It's taken from the Alan King documentary Come on Children. Happy birthday Lerxst!! May you have many more.
