JIM CROCE was born January 10, 1943. He would've been 76 today, but his life was tragically cut short at the height of his chart success. He racked up a long list of hits in his short life span, such as "Bad Bad Leroy Brown," "You Don't Mess around with Jim," the poignant "Time in a Bottle," "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song," "It Doesn't Have to Be that Way," and "Operator."
