Although we did not see Larry Mullen Jr. last night after the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame show at Madison Square Garden (Jill and I were all set to serenade him with “Happy Birthday” should he have graced us with his presence) – it was still fun to be out there waiting to catch a glimpse as the clock struck midnight to his actual birthday.
In 2001 we saw U2 in Providence on the Elevation tour on Larry’s birthday and we did sing. I did not see the Vertigo show on his birthday, but it did provide us with the amazing Larry Mullen Band t-shirts.
So here’s wishing a Happy Birthday to my Uber Crush of All Time, Ireland’s Hottest Export, World’s Greatest Drummer, Most Ageless 48-year-old, and Scorpion-shirt-wearer extraordinaire Larry Mullen Jr.!!!
