Happy Birthday, indeed. :D

Interesting to note that, in Tony's list, two cyclists feature (interesting to me, anyway) a few days before the start of the Tour de France 2009.
1975 - Andreas Klöden, German professional road bicycle racer
1979 - Thomas Voeckler, French road bicycle racer

...and I wouldn't actually describe the oeuvres of the person listed below as "rock". Pop, yes. So pop star. But rock?

1961 - Jimmy Somerville, Glasgow Soctland, rocker (Bronski Beat, Communards)
