On this day in 1960, Jean-Claude Camille FranÃ§ois Van Varenberg, AKA Jean-Claude Van Damme, AKA the Muscles from Brussels, was conceived. Also on this day, there was an earthquake in Belgium, and the epicenter was traced to his parents bedroom. (The maximal intensity degree was V, in case you were wondering.) Finally, itâ€™s almost too good to be true, but around this time the song â€œAinâ€™t That a Kick in the Headâ€ was also conceived. Learn more about Van Damme at his incredibly awesome website.
Also conceived today: Chuck Berry (1926), Peter Boyle (1935), Pam Dawber (1951), Wynton Marsalis (1961)
