Happy birthday to indie God Sufjan Stevens who celebrates his solar return today, July 1, 2011. In case you were wondering, his name is pronounced “soofy-yawn.” I heard the correct pronunciation come directly from his lips to my ears. I know! I haven’t forgotten it either!
He also shares a birthday with two other music gods: Fred Schneider from the B-52’s and Debbie Harry from Blondie.
