Hey Billie.. lots of Duke Boy Birthdays this month!
But.. I thought Byron told us LAST YEAR that he was 51!? That would make his 52 this year.

Hmmm ... thanks for the note. In checking back (because I know he was very forthcoming and gracious about his age at Hair Dare last year), I found a note in this post:

And I do recall him talking back then about the IMDb being wrong about his birth year. It's evidently been corrected since then. But what this all means is that he's actually 53 on April 17, which I'm correcting in this new post in a second ...
