    My old magazines were wrong! They have Ed's b-date listed as 1/26/57, Mike's-5/8/55, Al-5/8/55, and Dave's 10/10/55. That what I thought for years! I just seen at the offical site that those dates are wrong. Could someone tell me Dave's B-date?

    The press always gets it wrong, thanks to Dave deciding back in '78 that they should pretend they were two years younger than they really were.

    Glenn-it's physically impossible for Ed to be born on the 26 of Jan. 1953 and Al be born 4 months later

    You know, back in the '80's Dave's birthday
    was always Oct. 1955. Then after the splitup,
    the truth came out that it was DLR's idea to
    have them all be two years younger. This would place his birthday as Oct 1953. So why does everybody, including Dave himself in his Crazy From The Heat book, say that it was
    Oct 1954? Does a year make that much of a difference?

    Wasn't the idea that Dave wanted to lie about their ages brought up by Edward? I thought it was. If so, the "two years" could have just been pulled off the top of his head to make a point. Like you said, at their ages now, what difference does a year make? So I'm inclined to believe that the 1954 date is the correct one, otherwise why wouldn't Dave stick to the 1955 date?

    Yeah, I don't know Glenn. It seemed to me that everyone in the band deducted two years from their age. Either Dave is hanging on to that extra year or maybe he only "futzed" a year off his actual birthdate.

    Remember in CFTH he said he never had his 30th birthday cuz he had crossed the international dateline? That would've been in '83 or '84.

    uh, glenn, according to the v-h.com, when brad posts the b-days, it says that mike was june 20, 1954. as far as i know, ed and al are correct, but i always thought that dave was oct 10, '55, but i guess you learn something new everyday.

    Laner, who are you going to believe, me or Brad? Yeah, you're right, better go with Brad on this one. I was just taking the dates out of the VHE, so until we can get Mike himself on the phone, Brad would have to be the one we trust.
