Wrong photo and profile. This guy w/photo and profile was a singer. The person with the credited movies was in all probability born in the early 1900's. How could the profiled Clark be in a movie in 1932 when born in 1960? Didn't anyone notice the discrepancy?

I remember the first time I heard Def Leppard on the radio, the first time I saw Steve Clark in a video, and I remember the day he died and hearing it on the radio. From the first time I saw him, I fell so in love with him!!! There was always this presence about him. I still love him and I still miss him so much. I still miss his music.
