**Please note that 1951 Club membership is strictly on the basis that any individual or their representative has expressed a willingness and desire to join in writing. The 1951 Club also reserves the right to welcome some individuals into honorary membership even though they were born in other years. This would be usually on the grounds of having performed a service for the Club or in recognition of their outstanding achievement. It is obviously not intended nor does it claim to be to be a definitive list of well-known people born in 1951: the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia alone lists over 6000 people of note who were born in 1951. Sadly some of those individuals on the list are no longer with us. Wherever possible the 1951 Club has respectfully attempted to write to a relative or their representative to see whether the individual would have possibly liked to have been included.

  1. I share a birthday with Anjelica Huston. I don’t know how I know that, but it’s true.

  2. Thank you on behalf of Daylight Tune Ministry to follow our ministry blog. May our poetry bless your hearts and minds 🙂

  3. Personally, I believe that people born in 1947 have more class. I just can’t think of any names right now.

  4. David Bowie, Brian May…say no more.

    • Well I certainly won’t argue with that. So that’s David Bowie, Brian May for 1947 and I’ll raise you Phil Colins, John Deacon, David Coverdale and Chris Rea for 1951.
