Jay Aston, member of the Eurovision-wining Bucks Fizz, is 60 today.

Here's some gratuitous skirt-removal (She's the one on the extreme right (of the line-up. not politically)).

According to Wikipedia, she was diagnosed with Covid earlier this year (but is recovering).

A while ago, I suspect - time caught up with Askwith and he looked a lot older and thinner when doing TV last year.

An absolute legend.

Well, you know what monkeys say about Attenborough, my friend:

"He's the coolest, man".

Veltto Virtanen, weird Finnish former two-time parliament member and rock personality is celebrating his 70th birthday today.

He has some kidney disease, addison's disease, osteoarthritis and mycoplasma. ADHD and depression that was worsened by the death of his mother, whose caregiver he was for around a decade. Usually walks with a cane.

Maybe a good pick for some pools soon.

 

Also Malcolm X and Pol Pot would've been 96 on the 19th of May 2021.

A somewhat spurious connection with yesterday's birthday, and not King Crimson related; Baron Hunt of Kings Heath is 72 today

Official portrait of Lord Hunt of Kings Heath crop 2.jpg

Before his elevation to the peerage, he was plain old Philip Hunt and served under both Blair & Brown as a parliamentary under-secretary.
