How Will You Celebrate Van's 67th Birthday - August 31?
Van turns 67 on August 31. How will you celebrate? I like to make it an exclusive Van music day. I usually start with the older Them albums in the morning and continue chronologically till "Keep it Simple" around 2 in the morning. In the evening I'll probably raise a glass or two of something British or Irish. This is a bit inappropriate now that Van's a non-drinker.
I wonder what a guy like Van gets for his birthday? He's the classic guy who has everything. A DVD set of old British comedy shows? A model of his private plane for the desk? A scrapbook of articles from his Them days? Striped pyjamas? A 100 pound voucher for a magic shop?
Happy 67th Van. You're the greatest. You rock more than SuBo. You're better than "The Cheeky Girls" or even "Aqua".
