Here's a victorious picture of Jim on a lake near Dallas, Texas where he now lives.
Jim had black hair when I worked for him.
That other guy celebrating 70 today has had a remarkable career. Here is a list of some of the bands he played with.
John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers
Delaney and Bonnie and Friends
The Plastic Ono Band
Derek and the Dominos
He has played guitar with virtually everybody, from B.B. King to Bob Dylan to the Allman Brothers to John Lennon and George Harrison.
We wish him and Jim happy 70th birthdays with this performance by Clapton of one of his hit songs, Layla.
* Now I don't know where I got that but Jim Willi tells me that he's only 67. And he's continuing his "remarkable career" in broadcasting. Sorry, boss.
