No doubt there will be countless heartfelt messages of congratulations today, on this, the 65th anniversary of your birth.

I am saying Happy Birthday ‘over thousands and thousands of miles of shark-infested waters’ from the southern tip of Africa!

You didn’t change my life in a big and profound way. What you however undoubtedly have done, is provide the bedrock to the wanderings of body, mind and soul.

Your way with words and song has been a gift – pure, honest, truthful.

It is the shot-from-the-heart and straight-from-the-soul approach that has set you apart from the rest; you are one of a kind.

You have created a community of kindred spirits, united in our admiration, respect and gratitude for true artistry. Fans like us were born to follow because ‘there’s magic in the night’.

You’ve said it and yes, it’s only rock and roll, but it sure feels like love.

Happy Birthday, Bruce!
