Sometime today or tomorrow - regardless of what timezone this finds you in, our John turns 43. It's quite an occasion, as every year he's been a part of our world has brought a lot of inspiring and creative works to the light of the day - in the past 12 months, a long-expected LP and an EP, as well as a couple of little collabs here and there; despite all those paranoid comments that such things will never happen again.
All you're being asked to on this day, year after year is to make sure you think of John today and wish him good health, inspiration, love and happiness.
You can leave a happy birthday message in comments of this news item, it's like a message in a bottle. It gets to all the wrong folks, but somebody might meet somebody through it. Make it tasteful, spontaneous, less me, me, me and more you, you, you. When somebody inspires you, acknowledge and appreciate the fact that they're human, like you.
Happy birthday, John!
