:shock: :? :o :shock: Hard to believe that Rory took a day off just because it was a leap year. Rory was born in a leap year, and there were 12 leap years in his lifetime. Of those, if we figure the leap years when Rory's music career was active; 1964, 1968, 1972, 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, and 1992, well, that equals eight leap years. If anyone remembers going to see him on a leap day, please let us know! 8-)

In the meantime,



Did you ever wake up with them bullfrogs on your mind?

Hi,
I didn't know Rory was born in a leap year. Tomorrow would be his 68th birthday. I only saw him in 78, so no that wasn't a leap year, but what a great question. I hope you get a lot of responses.
Thanks for posting Bullfrog blues. What a great number and one that he often ended his concerts with. I think you can see why. :D

I was born the same year as Rory, never knew it was a leap year until now! I took a quick look at Joachim Matz's timeline and didn't see any shows on Feb. 29th. Do you think it was a superstition or coincidence?
