# CDLXII…”There Can Be Only One”…(Memorial Day Excerpt)…

May 29th, historically for this blog, has not been covered…but, as I mention in the book, it made an impression enough to bring out my inner nerd, as you’ll see in the following excerpt (hopefully to invoke more sales???)…

# lxxvii…”There Can Be Only One”…

The date on the calendar, May 29th, meant almost nothing to today’s star, Adrian Paul (1959), who, as you may recall, starred as Duncan MacLeod on the hit science-fiction show, “Highlander” (beautiful show about an “immortal”, who has to keep his head from being chopped off in order to stay that way) from 1992 to 1998.

It was actually my best friend, Shawn Smith, who introduced me to the British actor, as I have been an avid science fiction fan my whole life…so, naturally, I really enjoyed his acting and his emotion in the role for those six great years.  His career, in case you didn’t realize why he’s here yet, actually spans television and movies since 1987…since before a lot of the “Internet Generation” was even thought of…the title, by the way, was his usual “catchphrase” after taking another “immortal’s” head.

Also celebrating on this wonderful date are/were; late veteran patriarch Stacy Keach, Sr. (1914-2003), late President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), former baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent (1938), veteran racer Al Unser (1939), veteran actor Kevin Conway (1942), soap opera phenom Anthony Geary (1947), music and movie maestro Danny Elfman (1953) and famous songstress LaToya Jackson was born in 1956.

Veteran actress Annette Bening (1958), musical icon Melissa Ethridge (1961), former “The Facts of Life” co-star Lisa Welchel (1963), former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher (1967), Spice Girls’ Mel B. (1975), comedian/host Daniel Tosh (1975), wrestling personalities Brian Kendrick (1979) and Hornswoggle (1986) and basketball star Carmelo Anthony (1986) round out this list of celebs.

And, in case you didn’t know, there IS only one…
