Happy Birthday, Eddie Izzard!

Eddie Izzard

British Comedian/Actor, Marathon Runner and Action Transvestite Eddie Izzard was born on this day, February 7th, in 1962. That makes him exactly one day younger than Axl Rose! Just take a look at the two of them and see who is better preserved at this still relatively young age! I just saw Eddie perform here in NYC on Monday of this week while car shopping and he was completely hilarious! Happy Birthday, Eddie!

Happy Birthday, Axl Rose

Axl Rose Rock In RioRemember when we thought This Guy was the Crazy Axl Rose? Ah, memories.

William Bruce Bailey, also known as Axl Rose, celebrates his 51st Birthday today, having been born on Febrary 6th, 1962. I feel bad that Axl has lost his mind and become such a dick, but I guess we can always look back on Appetite for Destruction, which is a work of genius, and remember the good times. Happy Birthday Axl. Have some cake.

Julian Cope, Musician, author, musicologist and recognized authority on Neolithic culture was born on this day, October 21st, in 1957. I first became a huge fan of Julian as the lead vocalist for Liverpool-based post-punk band, The Teardrop Explodes and had the opportunity to see him perform as a solo artist many times back in the ’80s. His first autobiography, Head On is also one of the most amazing rock biographies I’ve ever read. Learn more about what Julian is up to these days at This Link! Happy Birthday, Julian!
