One's sins will find one out, as they say.judith wrote:His bio is included in Allmusic (AMG) and his birthdate is on other lists yet not on ours. This will not do so I've added his name to the main list.

judith wrote:John, I would like to add Sonny Boy Williamson II (Aleck Rice Miller/Aleck Ford) on an alternate birthdate. Even though, according to Wikipedia, his gravestone says March 11, 1908, I would like to at least note the date he seems to have chosen for his birthday, Dec. 5. I like Garth's notion that he and Little Richard share the same birthday, historically accurate? In a way.
Also, I couldn't find his name on the March birthday list? Perhaps I overlooked it or for lack of verification, he wasn't included.

judith wrote:Sure, we could have a section for those who have already died though I don't know how much extra work that would be for you. I have noticed that when people have favorite artists, they tend to bring up their birthday or date of passing on their own. I do agree that a small selection would be the way to do it.
(the obvious question which follows is would the section be open to debate? nominations?)
