    Any chance of keeping this thread to deaths/illness rather than predictions?

    Bob Weighton has officially been validated as the world's oldest living man by the Guinness Book of World Records. Congrats! (This marks the first time a British person has held this title since Henry Allingham in 2009.)

    Yeah it must be serious - surprised we're not hearing more about it on the news.

    There's a few folk I think who will get "wait, they died?" belated QOs once the worst of coronavirus passes. Harris is one of those names.

    Paul Chuckle (who is 72) was on the news earlier saying he had been bed bound with symptoms but is now “on the mend”.

    Similar, Toast. He's on the right the side of the country fence though, with the likes of Townes van Zandt and Guy Clark. I'll investigate, and hope he pulls through. Shame about Alan Merrill though - should have been a bigger pop star than he was, but I guess the Joan Jett royalties probably sweetened the pill a little.

    There was a 90% chance he would have survived.

    Children's book author and illustrator, Tomie DePaola, has sadly passed away at the age of 85 due to complications from a fall. https://www.npr.org/2020/03/30/824244076/tomie-depaola-beloved-childrens-author-and-illustrator-has-died I remember reading many of his books as a child including Strega Nona as well as his appearances on the 'Barney & Friends' television show. A sad day indeed.

    Probably all those in-the-middle-of-nowhere in Asia, South America or Africa living folks who claim to be 120-150 but dont look a day over 90

    I don't care if Whoppi Goldberg dies from it, so long as her twin sister Whoopi is all right !

    He was singer and guitarist with Arrows, who had a hit in their own right with "Touch Too Much." (And their own TV show!) He was also the last surviving member of the original group.

    Oh do one. Some people you might have a point on this. John Prine is not the fucking horse to die on in this regard.

    I had that for about 4-5 weeks from late December until end of January. It was horrendous. Kept thinking I was going choke to death.

    Lets be frank, even to diehard stiff chasers the thought of coronavirus is off putting. There's a few dozen people I'd happily (fantasise about) smothering with a cushion in the dead of night while singing 'burn baby burn' but I wouldn't wish coronavirus on them.

    He had a high fever and pneumonia, was in the intensive care unit, but is now on the mend and is no longer in danger, it's said.

    He was a great character! An overweight shaman with a cult following who firmly believed in Reptilians. One of the great conspirationists of last century, alongside Paul Hellyer. In his old age he carried a striking resemblance to E.T. and lost a lot of weight. Also he was a crossover between Robert Mugabe and Ragionier Filini of Fantozzi movies. RIP to one of the great!

    I couldn't get any bread in the supermarket today so I went to the park and threw I.O.U's to the ducks.

    I've not been able to post on here as much as I would like lately. I feel like hell! My cough is worse, I have a headache from hell, and I have aches and pains all over.It seems there is little doubt, despite my best efforts to avoid it, I have corona virus ! I am now self isolating for the next week like the govt said I should, and am hoping and praying it gets better ,or I will have to go to hospital by the weekend. Wish me luck ! PS I have never been so frightened in my life. Just hope I'm strong and healthy enough to beat this thing !
