    People who find autographs interesting and valuable are psycho stalker freaks who should be in jail and celebrities who indulge them are egomaniacal narcissists and also should be in jail

    Dead Pop Stars

    Tony Baylis is on my DDP theme team of #1 hitmakers. He was 85, and apparently in poor health for a while – dementia, prostate cancer, frail and prone to falls. Parkinson's to top it off. Poor bloke had well and truly been through the thresher. He's not a scoring hit yet. He's one of the deepest cuts on my team, but there was a Wurzel who left before they'd even had a hit single (Reg Quantrill) who bagged several qualifying obits in 2016. Baylis was a member for 15 years, and one of only three members of their chart-topping lineup. He was also interviewed by BBC Somerset a few years ago. Top story on BBC Somerset last time I checked is a dog who swallowed a fishhook.

    Dying Off The Radar

    I was so disillusioned when I first looked up Electric Six after seeing this video on TV and discovered she wasn't an actual member of the band. A presence.

    Internet Celebrities

    I love dogs who become internet celebrities by being ugly as shit. Marnie started out looking bad and just kept getting worse and worse. Barely even recognisable as a single discrete object in her last days, let alone a dog. To clarify, she's not the dog on the left, but the pile of discarded dog parts on the right. Bitch looked like SHIT. What an icon. Rest in pieces ❤️

    Your Personal Survivors

    Since then, Macbeth has been out of prison, and back in prison (and probably back out again by now). A quote from an article about his 2016 trial, in reference to his 2008 trial: "At the time I was going through a lot of stress with my throat. At the time it wasn’t clear whether cancer had come back." There's no further quote to say anything like "And it turned out it had! I've been dying ever since!". This seems to imply that he didn't have cancer at all in 2008, let alone terminal cancer. (He did previously have cancer in 2001.) This seems to be such a deadpooling cliché that it might be naive to ask, but: can you really just straight-up lie that you're terminally ill in court? Like... you don't need a doctor's note or anything? You can just rock up with a gippy throat and croak "dead soon" at the judge?

    Silent Era People

    I've long been fascinated by the huge stretch of time between Baby Peggy's peak of fame and the present day. Incredible that someone who was an irrelevant hasbeen by the time The Great Gatsby was published was still alive in 2020. It must be disorientating for a once-huge star to quite possibly outlive their entire contemporary fanbase. It should be almost impossible for a celebrity to live beyond all first-hand memories of their stardom, but then most people her age are probably too young to remember her. She lived to see her fans become 100% second-hand – people taking a historical interest, far removed from Peggymania. When's the last time she'd have heard from anyone who was authentically nostalgic for her? I don't know of any other figure who was a living relic in quite the same way.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Dave Carey died in 2015: https://www.theargus.co.uk/announcements/deaths/deaths/13982435.Dave_Carey/ I found a forum thread about Marie Benson while researching for my #1 Hits DDP team, which included a post saying this: "I came across your post today regarding Marie Benson. She is my Great Aunt. All you information on her is great. Aunty Marie taught me how to sing jazz in my 20s and we became very close. She unfortunatley passed away in 2003." (Another two posters also claim to be relatives after that, neither of whom contradict that account.)

    Quite surprised he hasn't found his way onto any of those Cancelled Sex Maniac theme teams.

    Deadpool Detective Work

    "Talk About Pop Music" drove me up the wall researching for my #1 Hits team. Every fifth person I'd google, they'd have an entire article that just amounts to "hell if we know either". Are pop blogs written by bots now?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    I need to hear more from the Twitter account called "StrategicNews2" whose pinned tweet says "I am back. My account has been suspended for no reason" before I make up my mind on this one

    The Dead of 2020

    Taoist guru to the stars and early-2000s self-help fad the Barefoot Doctor (aka Stephen Russell) has died, according to posts on his social media accounts on the 26th: Doesn't seem to be reported in any news outlets yet. He had an Observer column for 5 years, though maybe they'd rather we forget that.
