Interesting thought from the Las Vegas Sun:

According to them you're officially NOT a baby boomer unless your day of birth falls 1946-1964. I had no idea it was official (or went into the Sixties) but did think it was conception post-war (from the story that it was caused by all those soldiers who said that when they got home, taking their boots off would be the second thing they would do).

So anyway, by those standards, none of The Beatles were baby boomers, Ron Wood is the only boomer in the Stones and only Keith Moon in The Who.

"Jimi Hendrix doesn’t fall under 'boomer,' and neither do Eric Clapton,
Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Lou Reed, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Van
Morrison, Jerry Garcia or Jefferson Airplane. Not Marvin Gaye (1939).
Not Neil Young (nor Crosby, Stills and Nash). Neither Simon nor
Garfunkel."
