Have A Very Merry Birthday Mister Julian Casablancas!!!

Julian Fernando Casablancas was thankfully born into the universe on August 23, in 1978. He is a vocal predator, and main songwriter of the band 'The Strokes." He recently wrapped up his first ever solo venture with the album 'Phrazes For The Young'. Julian Casablancas' voice features a punch that delivers a wide range in pitch and combines elements of grit and soul. He claims to draw inspiration from the likes of Lou Reed and Jim Morrison. With 'Phrazes for the Young', he was influenced by the book of Oscar Wilde "Phrases and Philosophies for the Use of the Young".

I guess you can say Julian is partly to blame for my evolution and adoration into modern rock 'n' roll musique. Seeing The Strokes live for the first time back in 2001 at the baby age of 14, you could imagine the impact and impression that was left on me ever since than. His energy, although showcased mostly in small steps while singing across the stage, transcends a feeling of definitive and masterful rock star presence that only this New Yorker can make come alive nowadays.

He's my favorite. Here's to you Julian, on your special day. Hoorah! Hoorah!
