Musicians who turned 70 this year could also be referred to as "born in 1938". Just for starters:
          Dan Crary
          Norman Blake
          Happy Traum
          Mike Auldridge
          Hedy West
          Kenny Rogers
         
Can you think of a few more?

Since I view the road of life as a continuum, rather than a series of mileposts, I didn't think I'd necessarily celebrate my 70th, in less than two years. Then again, when I look at all my fellow travelers who never got this far, celebrating survival for that long does make sense...Happy birthday to all of the folks mentioned - never let 'em see you sweat!
