He's only 60!?!? I thought he was 60 back in '77!

Keep up the great work!

Thanks evr. It's funny...wikipedia lists him as turning 70 today but I believe 60 to be correct

evr said...

I honestly would not have been shocked if you had said he turned 90 today!!!!

I've always loved the first era Stranglers. Walk On By is one of the best cover versions ever (party because it's almost a Light My Fire cover too!)

They were absolutely superb in the early years. Inventive, sarcastic, catchy tunes.

it is correct, that he turns 70. Probably oldest man in punk/wave movement:D

Charlie Harper must be pretty close too!!

Sorry, but Jet Black Turns 70 today (he born in 1938.).

evr said...

I knew 60 sounded "young" for him and I do remember reading about how he was older than his "punk" peers!

Club80 (Robever80) said...

I'll modify the post to state 70 years old. Older than his contemporaries, even if he was just 60.
