Calendar* Correction: Guy Mitchell

You get the sense that many of the people who put together the music calendars inferior to Inside The Rock Era were getting lazy in February.  Or perhaps they had done too much partying over the Super Bowl.

Whatever the reason, February was a big month for mistakes on all the "On This Day", "This Day in Music", etc. websites that are out there.

Many of those websites report that Guy Mitchell was born on February 27, 1927.  Some say he died on July 2, 1999.  According to The BBC, the newspaper The Guardian, and the books Encyclopedia of Music in the 20th Century by Lol Henderson and Lee Stacey and The Dude Martin Band Story by Jim Goggin, Mitchell was born on February 22.  The official website for Mitchell, the newspaper The Los Angeles Times and the two books listed above also confirm that Mitchell died on July 1.
