Alex young and oldOn this day back in 1953, our favorite guitarist - Alexandar Zivojinovich (aka Alex Lifeson) - was born in Fernie, British Columbia. He turns 59 today which makes him the youngest member of Rush, being born about a month after Geddy Lee and just under a year after Neil. Next up is Neil, who'll turn the big 6-oh on September 12th. 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.
