Happy Birthday, cousin Spike, wherever you are!

Today, 24 February 2007, marks the 64th anniversary of the birth of our late Wilbury cousin and ukulele virtuoso, Spike (aka Nelson Wilbury, aka L'Angelo Mysterioso, aka George Harrison). Spike left us five years ago last November and is still deeply missed.

Always my favorite Beatle, since I'm a kid. But that pic of him is terrible.....looks like it was shot right before he succumbed.

Poor thing. He had so much real talent.

The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
