Singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka, a native of Brooklyn, New York, is 78 today. Along with all of his own Top Ten hits as a vocalist, he wrote countless hits for others such as Connie Francis, Jimmy Clanton, the Fifth Dimension, the Carpenters and the Captain and Tennille. Appropriately, one of his biggest hits is called "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen." I thought I'd share a great photo I took with Mr. Sedaka at his former home in Westport, Connecticut.
