Happy birthday to Green Day’s bassist and co-founder Mike Dirnt!  I met him a few weeks ago backstage at the Big Audio Dynamite concert and within a 15 minute period, I met BAD’s Mick Jones, Clem Burke from Blondie, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz from Tom Tom Club and Talking Heads.  It was a night that will live on forever in my mind because it was so awesome!  Mike Dirnt was super cool as we talked and I thanked him for all the great music.  The picture only captures one moment, but Mike was winking during the taking of the photo – yes!  Thanks Mike, have a great day!

Also born today, actress Audrey Hepburn and singer Lance Bass.  Back when I used to dye my hair blonde, I was mistaken for Lance Bass a LOT!  I don’t see the resemblance personally.  I’ve surprisingly never met him, but I’d like to meet him one day so I can take a photo with him to prove that we are in fact, two different people.
