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 70 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. Geddy Lee posted this Instagram tribute to his best bud and bandmate on his big day:
