One of our favorite celebrities is celebrating his 69th birthday today.
Neil Young, who has had a long and storied career of standing up for the little guy, was targeted in a ruthless and hateful bullying campaign to try and get him to cancel his concert in Israel. It ended up getting shut down due to safety reasons after the Hamas terrorist group fired thousands of rockets at the general vicinity of the concert.
Despite the threats of boycott, Neil never wavered and has been enjoying one of the most successful years of his entire career. At the age of 69, that’s no small feat.
So here’s the original Canadian badass. Best wishes for many more years of shaking things up, doing the right thing and rocking in the free world!
Happy birthday Neil.
You haven’t aged a day.
