A quick Google shows 1972 to be the prevailing DOB, except that some of 
these hits are mirros of ourselved, and his biog page is under construction; 
however, [[AllMusic]] is usually regarded as a reliable source, and this 
also cites 1972. 

The user doesn't have a talk page because nobody has created it yet, but you 
can do that simply by editing it, and you will be asked to create it.

Hope that helps.

Ask me if you have any questions; [[User Talk:Rodhullandemu]]. Cheers.
