Happy Birthday, Nikki Sixx!

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? Nikki’s arms appear to be virtually un-inked and I’ve never seen Neal and Dennis with shorter hair, so you can tell this photo is from another era entirely. Still, it’s a fun blast from the past. Motley Crue Bassist and Renaissance Man Nikki Sixx was born on this day, December 11th, in 1958. Happy Birthday, Nikki!

Happy 24th Birthday, John Fred Young!


How Cute is this Guy?

Today, December 11th, 2008, is the twenty-fourth birthday of my pal John Fred, who plays drums for the band Black Stone Cherry. John Fred is awesome and has the best hair in rock. Happy Birthday, Kiddo!

Happy Birthday, John Fred Young!

Black Stone Cherry: John Fred is the Hunky One with All the Hair

Today my friend John Fred turns 23, having been born on December 11th, 1984. John Fred plays drums for the awesome hard rock band, Black Stone Cherry, and he is just hilarious. Earlier this afternoon I called him up at his home in Kentucky to wish him Birthday specialness and he told me, in his nearly-impenetrable Kentucky accent, that he had been outside hunting. Rock guys who hunt. Hilarious.
