I guess I should say "Let me be one of the last to wish Edd Byrnes a happy birthday. He turned 75 on Wednesday. Only just now I learned of it from visiting "Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear" and "Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine". (Both links to the left, Slick.)
He rocketed to fame as Kookie (Gerald Lloyd Kookson III) on '77 Sunset Strip' and was the inspiration for the song "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb". (For this role, TV Guide ranked him #5 among America's 25 Greatest Teen Idols".)
He's appeared in guest roles on a lot of series since then: 'Maverick', 'Mannix', 'Murder, She Wrote', 'Burke's Law', and 'Alias Smith And Jones' among plenty of others.
So happy birthday, Mr. Byrnes. (Say that out loud, and it feels like Waylon Smithers should be jumping out of a cake!)
All the best from Toobworld!
