Throwback: Happy 49th Birthday Snoop Dogg

Today is a rather auspicious day in music: Tom Petty‘s 70th birthday is today, and today is the legendary Snoop Dogg’s 49th birthday. I’ve had the thrill of seeing Snoop three times — once in Philadelphia for the annual Roots Picnic, once in Jersey City for the 4th of July and once at the Catalpa Festival, where he headlined the festival’s final day. Every time, he was amazing. May there be at least 49 years of g shit, brother. Happy birthday, Snoop!
