46 years ago, 10 Dec 1972, the flamboyant Brian Molko was born.

The lead singer of the British band Placebo is particularly known for his androgynous appearance, distinctive nasal vocals, unique guitar style and tuning, & being open about his use of recreational drugs.

With his band they gained exposure in 1997 after releasing “Nancy Boy”, a controversial song which contains themes of drugs, sex, gender confusion and bisexuality. Molko is openly bisexual. He has a son, who was born in 2005.

In 2010 Molko & co. came to Jakarta, giving us the fans such a fantastic show. Even though Molko didn’t say much to the audience, but the sound was amazing, with breathtaking gloomy lighting, and a powerful performance.

The video here is from Brian Molko’s appearance at a French TV show, Traffic.musique, hosted by Guillaume Durand. Molko covered “Five Years”, originally sung by David Bowie from his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Happy birthday to our icon of generation gender neutral!
