Artist Keith Haring was born on this day May 4th in 1958. Keith passed on when he was just 31 years old — so young! But his art and message live on, and today Google honors what would have been Keith’s 54th Birthday with a fun Doodle inspired by his art. If you live in the tri-state area, be sure to see the Keith Haring retrospective up now through July 8th, 2012 at the Booklyn Museum.
How happy does Nikki Sixx look in the picture above, where he is book-ended by Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper) and Kub Coda (Brownsville Station) on the left and Neal Smith (Alice Cooper) and Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult) on the right?

Motley Crue Bassist and Renaissance Man Nikki Sixx was born on this day, December 11th, in 1958. Happy Birthday, Nikki!
