Birthday Boys

Vince Neil, the lead singer of Motley Crue, and Sammy Llanas, the (co-) lead singer of the BoDeans, were both born on this very day 47 years ago.

I went to high school with a boy who was born on the exact same day as I was. He didn't find that very interesting.

I've never met anyone who was born on the same day as me (11/3/61). In fact, I've never heard of anyone else who was born on that day. No celebrity was born on that day. No one who ever played major league baseball was born on that day. The best that the imdb offers up is Kari Michaelson, who was on "Gimme a Break" sometimes; I've never heard of her.

The coolest coincidence of birthdays was on "Family Ties", where both Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter were born on June 21, 1947.

Then there are the two 1994 MVPs, Jeff Bagwell and Frank Thomas, both born 5/27/68. Maybe they'll go into the Hall of Fame on the same day.

According to, Greg Townsend, a defensive end for the Raiders from 1983 to 1993, was born on 11/3/61. I've heard of him. That's the best I can do.

I got all excited that you'd remembered my birthday, but you didn't. Vince Neil, James Dean, Sammy Llanas, and me. Many people call us the four musketeers.

Also, wife-swapping Yankee hurler Fritz Peterson was born on February 8.

Happy Birthday.
