Happy Birthday to singer / bassist / guitarist, Kim Deal! What a cool woman… and check out her RUSH shirt! I’ll never forget at the first Big Day Out (The Breeders were on the bill) when Kim ran up to my wife, Cathy, and gave her a big hug, as if she’d known her all her life! Kim’s 58 today ~ she was in her late 20s when she co-wrote and recorded this song with Pixies…
