bill kreutzmann, born may 7, 1946, founding member of the warlocks - soon to be grateful dead - turned 63 today, coincidentally on the last leg of the grateful dead reunion tour! while drums and space are my least favorite part of any dead show (sorry to report that), billy's drums (and even more so when paired w/mickey) gave the dead awesome percussion.
when kreutzmann is not in reunion mode w/his fellow dead band members, he sometimes tours with the rhythm devils.
happy birthday billy!
fyi, i you want to hear the dead sing their version of "happy birthday" to billy, check out "steppin' out with the dead: england '72" :D
