Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him interviewed in "The Lucky Country" by Terry Reilly, The Age [Melbourne, Australia], 8 December 1995, p. 10: "I live in Johannesburg... Ermelo, where I was born is 250 kilometres south of there. I am 31. I was born 3 August 1964 at six o'clock on a Wednesday. My people had chicken for dinner."

NOTE: It's not clear whether six o'clock was AM or PM but he seems to mean at dinner time.
