In the birthdays section of the Today in History feature for Friday, April 2, The Associated Press reported erroneously that singer Leon Russell was turning 63 that day. Though numerous reference publications give his birthdate as April 2, 1941, his personal assistant says Russell's birth certificate lists his birthdate as April 2, 1942, making him 62.
