Luciano Pavarotti died on my 40th birthday, sadly no points for me as I hadn't started entering a team into DDP then despite having been a DL member for 2 1/2 years.

 

Nothing much happens on September 6th, very few notable deaths or births, although Diana, Princess of Wales's funeral was held on my 30th and everything shut down for the day, I had to party the night before instead ^_^ .

Roy Rogers died on my 12th birthday. I actually knew who he was, as one of my books had a big picture of him and Trigger.

 

Not the most exciting anecdote, I know.

Fuck me, upon checking Wiki for my birthday I see it is also ''Red Hand Day'' which as anyone who knows me or has read 'Teddy Bears Picnic' thread will understand..........amuses me :D

 

(I am not the atypical these days 'red hand is bad' folks, symbol of many a thing inc the McNeils of Barra ;) )

Not very many people I've heard of have died on my birthday, Robert Moog and Benigno Aquino being the two most famous.

 

I was however born on the 20th anniversary of Trotsky's death.

Bill Bixby and Quentin Crisp are the only really notable deaths on my birthday (21st November). Curiously there's never been a DDP hit on that date either...

How many DDP hits have there been out of interest? Is this like ''if 30 odd folk are in the same room it is even money 2 will have the same birthday'' type thing? (may be well out on odds but you know what I mean)

Historically (and in my lifetime, but I was far too young to remember);

 

Dixie Dean

Jackie Coogan

 

In more recent years, the most notable would have to be Peter Osgood, in 2006.

On the topic of those I was aware of (which is admittedly a shorter timeframe) the most notable are Juan Antonio Samaranch and Charles Colson.

 

And speaking of Colson, I was born just one day before Richard Nixon died. My parents kept the newspaper from my date of birth I believe and it had a headline among the lines of "Nixon very sick".

Lisa Lopes & Ginger Rogers are 2 of mine, as is this: 1981 Dixie, a mouse who lived 6 years, dies!

 

But then I share my birthday with Al Pacino amongst others so I think that's a bit cooler!

I thought he was rather a good Nazi huh.gif , If he was bad at 'Nazi-ing' he would never have got such a good gig...
