Throwback: Happy 52nd Birthday, Zack de la Rocha!

As it turns out, the first couple of weeks of this month are rather auspicious in music history:

Today is an equally auspicious day: Rage Against the Machine‘s Zack de la Rocha turns 52 — 52! — today. And if you were alive and coherent in the 90s, Rage was a part of your soundtrack.

de la Rocha is an under-appreciated frontman and emcee in my book. (By the way, some of us are still waiting for that solo album, Zack. What’s up with that?)

But more important: Happy birthday, Zack! May there be many more!
