Throwback: Happy 63rd Birthday, Michael Stipe!

The first couple of weeks of January are very busy in music history. We start off with the following:

As I’ve mentioned countless times on this site, I’ve been a huge R.E.M. fan since I was a small boy in the ’80s. It should be no surprise, that R.E.M. has been a major part of my life’s soundtrack.

Today, R.E.M.’s frontman Michael Stipe turns 63. So let’s celebrate Stipe’s tremendous music and life today, huh?

Happy birthday, Michael! May there be many, many more!
