How come nobody mention his age or his date of birth? I believe that he is 80 years old like me. Am i wrong? If so, please correct me.  Tahzann / Curly / aka's

Sparrow going strong at 79

Saturday, July 12, 2014
Sparrow turned 79 on Wednesday but also turned back the hands of time with a riveting performance when his milestone was celebrated with a concert at De Nu Pub (The Mas Camp) in Woodbrook. The event featured performances by popular calypsonians and the cake-sticking tradition, and was attended by several calypsonians and calypso afficionadoes. Maybe it was the lure of Sparrow and his iconic guest performers but from the moment the show was announced most available seating at the venue was pre-booked by patrons calling to make reservations so the concert became a standing-room-only event. Although he had a seat with his wife Sharon, Opposition leader Keith Rowley opted to stand at the bar with friends, dancing and singing along with patrons to every Sparrow item. Apparently catching his ear, one exuberant patron tried taxing Rowley’s knowledge of old Sparrow songs, loudly singing the lyrics of some of Sparrow’s lesser known past hits.
