    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Nothing really from Peter Kay since his ‘concerning’ appearance in April on the Big Night In.

    I think that’s right. And in terms of 50s #1s + living here’s the complete list, ordered by earliest to last. Tony Bennett Joey Ambrose (or D’Ambrosio) of Bill Haley and his Comets The Dream Weavers (6 out of 7 of them still seem to be living, which is incredible) Pat Boone Herman Santiago and Jimmy Merchant of Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers Tommy Steele Paul Anka Jerry Allison of The Crickets Harry Belafonte Jerry Lee Lewis Connie Francis Don Everly of The Everly Brothers Jane Morgan Shirley Bassey Cliff Richard, Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch of The Drifters/Shadows Craig Douglas Jerry Keller John Cuffley of Emile Ford and the Checkmates The only act with a “?” next to it is Lord Rockingham’s XI (#1 in Nov 1958). There were 13 members on the hit. 10 we confirmed are dead in the UK Hit Singles thread. Three we can’t trace: Ronnie Black (double bass), Rex Morris (tenor sax) and Bernie Taylor (guitar). Some of the members were born as late as the 30s/40s and 2 died as recent as 2014 so very possible one or more could still be alive.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Legendary French composer, Claude Bolling will be turning 91 next year and has been rather quiet of late. Wow, so many candidates who would have been great for the 2021 DL have died this year but there are still so many good candidates for the 2021 DL, that it will be extremely difficult to limit them all down to just 50.

    If @Ulitzer95 doesn't comment, you're golden.

    The amusement comes from the thread lasting (at most) a couple of days and not really who posted either the thread or the death. So sure Adrian gets a few likes as something of a by-product. And in any case, if you feel so strongly about it why have you posted this whilst not even backing up your own assertion by recommending either of the OP's posts?

    Further to this, I believe he's the second-oldest person alive who has been a UK chart-topper, behind Jane Morgan (The Day the Rains Came, January 1959). Jane will be 97 next May, Tony will be 95 next August. I await someone more knowledgeable telling me I'm wrong.

    Sounds like he went for a big "Up and (now) Under"

    Why is Adrian being rewarded with 15 post reactions for the word dead? The OP deserves to win the day.

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    1969 Moog infancy. Saying infancy isn’t even correct. This was groundbreaking stuff by Dick Hyman (yeah yeah....). Can you hear ELP....I can. Pink Floyd maybe. SirC

    22. Tony Bennett

    As far as I know he's still about, so I guess he's next earliest. "Rock Around the Clock" topped the chart six months after Bennett.

    i_o (aka Garrett Lockhart), DJ and EDM producer/artist, has died aged 30. His remix of the club classic Castles in the Sky only came out a few days ago.

    Back on his bike! Apparently Jakobsen broke every bone in his face and lost all but one of his teeth in the crash.

    Is Joey D'Ambrosio dead?

    22. Tony Bennett

    Not sure if anyone's pointed this out already but, following Vera Lynn's death, Tony is the earliest UK chart-topper still alive (Stranger in Paradise, May 1955).

    Very sad news.I had the pleasure of meeting her at a Doctor Who convention once.I was dressed as a cyberman. Very nice lady. Possibly the first celeb who has died that I have actually met in fact ! Louise is notable for being a famous actress in 2 of my all time favourite tv shows because she also played the role of the manipulative upper class prisoner Helen Masters in early episodes of Prisoner Cell Block H.

    Billy Connolly

    I echo this congratulation. After Sean Connery he is surely the 2nd biggest Scottish celebrity in the world ! Many happy returns Billy !

    I'd rather keep an eye on Gino Paoli if I had to choose, but I guess it's less international...
