Calendar* Correction: Martyn Ware of Human League

The infamous and other websites report that Martyn Ware of Human League (and later Heaven 17), and later a producer for Tina Turner, Erasure, and others, was born on May 16, 1956.  This is false, according to the official websites for Heaven 17 and the city of Sheffield, as well as ABC News and BBC.  According to those reputable sources, Ware was born in May 19.

Numerous sources report that Martyn was born in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, or Sheffield, South Yorkshire.  Sheffield did not become part of the county of South Yorkshire until 1974 with the Local Government Act, long after Ware was born.  The correct county that Martyn was born in is West Riding of Yorkshire.
