No wonder I feel such an affinity for this guy. I just realized that we share the same birthday; except I was born exactly 12 years later in '58. WHOA! Other similarities: He played a Telecaster, I play a Telecaster (sounds just like his), he became overweight, I became overweight, he liked to watch alot of telly, I seem to like to watch alot of telly. From now on, I will celebrate my birthday with Syd by playing his music!! I love it!!
