UncUpdate B-day Graphic

For many years Beatles lead guitarist George Harrison believed he was born on this day. But in 1992, he announced "I only learned recently after all these years that the date and time of my own birth have always been off by one calendar day and about a half hour on the clock." So in fact, George's birthday was really yesterday, February 24th. He would have been 75.
