  1. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, IAN! I have been in the audience for your last 3 concerts in San Francisco —and they were fabulous.

    I am 62 and you have been a hero since I was about 15. You are, hands down, one of the finest songwriters, voices, and have led some of the best rock bands ever. And all the while, you seem to have been able to maintain a level head, a marriage, and a fair bit of sanity. I don’t know how you have done it — but that’s success by anyone’s measure. You are DEARLY loved and admired…and I have been blessed to live while you lived and created all this fabulous music — some of the best rock songs that drag you onto the dance floor, to lovely, beautiful ballads, to just fabulous songs like “When I’m President” and “What For”…

    I hope you are well and happy –I have watched many interviews with you over the years, and you always seem so honest, and genuine and humble…and I always think that you would be on my list of celebrities I would enjoy having a pint with (aren’t that many, honestly!)
