Another CeleBirthdate

Singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot turns 77 today.

Forty years ago the freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a turbulent Lake Superior during a violent "frontal boundary" storm on November 10 1975
...a week before Gordon Lightfoot turned 37.

A year later, in November 1976, Lightfoot's ode to this tragedy was climbing the singles chart as he turned 38 that month.
