is the 63rd birthday of punk rock chick, Deborah Harry also known as Blondie.
Blondie, got her moniker and her band name from wolf-whistling truck drivers. The band's first commercial success occurred in Australia in 1977, when the music television program Countdown mistakenly played "In the Flesh", the b-side of their single.
The parents of Blondie fans are more likely to prefer Guy Mitchell, who died on this day in 1999. Surprisingly enough, he was an American Croation who was born with the name Albert Cernik.
...probably would have the 47th birthday of Princess Diana had she worn a seatbelt. Diana is said to have paid a coterie of psychics who cottoned on to the fact that she liked to hear dire predictions about Prince Charles. Instead, what she really needed was someone to foresee that riding in a car with a drunk and drugged driver travelling at twice the speed limit was a bad idea.
This day is also Moving Day in Quebec.
