Throwback: Happy 65th Birthday, Grandmaster Flash!

Legendary hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash celebrates his 65th birthday — 65th! — today. As I’ve often said, we should give flowers to our legends while we have them. So let’s celebrate the man and his extraordinary contributions to music.

And from the live footage I found on YouTube, Grandmaster Flash is one of the most entertaining DJs in the entire world.

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