Throwback: Happy (Belated) 56th Birthday, Shirley Manson!

This past week or so has been a rather auspicious one in music history:

This past week has been very busy for me, and I wound up forgetting that Garbage‘s Shirley Manson turned 56 on August 26. We need to celebrate Manson for her work with Garbage — and perhaps more important, for being a badass, feminist icon, who has inspired a whole generation of badass women.

Happy belated birthday, Ms. Manson! May there be many, many, many more!
