Almost everyone who has written on the Internet about Slim Whitman's birth date has given it has 20th January 1924.

My wife and I went to see Slim and his son Byron performing at the Royal Centre, Nottingham on 10th Oct.2002

He has obviously now lost some of his singing ability but considering his age he was able to put on a good show.

We were invited in, backstage, after the show had finished where we met and chatted to them both.

They autographed their picture in the concert programme and the poster we had obtained from the foyer wall.
