Rock and roll legend VAN MORRISON was born in Northern Ireland this day in 1945. He turns 72 today and shows no signs of slowing down. Among his most famous hits are "Brown-Eyed Girl," "Domino," "Blue Money" and "Moondance." However, he got his start in a rock group known as "Them" and had a hit with a song about a girl named "Gloria" (G-L-O-R-I-A). See an early live performance of that classic by clicking below.
