UPDATE - 8/27@11:14PM: Here's Geddy's annual birthday shout-out to his buddy via Instagram:

----- snip -----

On this day back in 1953, our favorite guitarist - Alexandar Zivojinovich (aka Alex Lifeson) - was born in Fernie, British Columbia to Serbian immigrants, Nenad and Melanija Zivojinovich. He turns 69 years young today which catches him up with his bandmate Geddy Lee; Alex is the youngest member of Rush, being born about a month after Geddy Lee and just under a year after the late Neil Peart. In celebration of this occasion here's some video of a teenage 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, blah, blah, blah.
