Happy birthday Ashton Irwin! Can you believe the 5SOS drummer is 26?! The years have flown by quickly, feels like just yesterday we were introduced to the then 17-year-old back in December 2011. He’s grown and changed a lot over the years, but a lot has stayed the same. For example, he’s just gotten better as a drummer and overall musician. Plus, he’s still bringing us so many smiles and so much joy.
All this celebrating has got us reminiscing the earlier years. We’ve seen Ashton grow into the man he is today since he got into the public eye at just 17. We’ve all seen him change his style from a classic punk look to bandanas to his own unique personal style. We watched his hair change from a punk fringe to his long hair, then dyeing his hair red and then black like it is now. So much has changed, but it’s all part of Ashton Irwin.
Looking back, we feel like proud mothers watching him become the man he is. After all, as smoothly as it seemed to happen, we know many struggles had to be overcome. And now, at 26 years old, he has a successful career going with 5SOS for almost the last ten years, and he seems happier than ever. We couldn’t be more proud!
Now to celebrate his birthday, let’s wander into the past years, including this one! Ever wonder which era of Ashton is most similar to you? Which year fits who you are and your style the most? Maybe it was the bandanas, maybe his red hair look. We can all agree that Ashton is his 2020 self as he’s evolving and becoming more himself every year. But which era suits you the best?
