    Tennis players

    Anyone else noticed the ball boys and girls at Wimbledon seem to be dressed like those old criminals who had big bags marked "SWAG" you'd see in cartoons?

    Please Let It Be... Paul McCartney

    Never been to a Festival, never desired to watch any of them on the tellybox. Macca hasn't changed my mind about that, but I was Saturday night singing along until the early hours. The possibility of bumping into the likes of Steve Coogan or Princess Beatrice at these sort of events fills me with horror.

    The Dead of 2022

    Time for an Ian Lavender v Mike Berry (last of the Being Served regulars) war! The fact ITV's Graham Skidmore gets a BBC mention but FW doesn't first, astonishing.

    Deaths of the Silver Screen III

    If Frank Williams has indeed died (and no reason to doubt it), @Handrejka joins myself and two others on a hit.

    Please Let It Be... Paul McCartney

    Really enjoyed his Glasto set. Good for an 80 year old not to need a toilet break! We'll miss the old millionaire when he's gone.

    Sometime guitarist with The Manhattans and brother of Regina Belle, Bernard Belle has reportedly died after recovering from a stroke some years ago: https://www.soultracks.com/story-bernard-belle-dies Co-wrote such as Remember The Time for Michael Jackson and Something In Common for Bobby Brown with Whitney Houston, but I've plumped for Hi-Five's I Like The Way (The Kissing Game), #43 in the UK charts in June 1991 (although a much bigger hit elsewhere) which I may have posted on another thread in connection with a death:

    The Beatles Death Curse

    I love going tenuous in this thread. Frank Doran, former Lord Mayor of Liverpool who presented John Lennon's Freedom of the City of Liverpool to Yoko Ono personally in Central Park in 1998, reportedly dead: Of course, Lennon had been dead for nearly 18 years before the Freedom was delivered. Cue Scouse jokes in 3....

    Broadway - "the Great White Way"

    James Rado, Grammy award winning co-creator of the musical Hair, reportedly dead aged 90: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2022/jun/22/james-rado-broadway-hair-dies IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0705735/ IBDB: https://www.ibdb.com/broadway-cast-staff/james-rado-6628 @time ninja'ed me, just because I checked whether he was a DDP pick either previously or now. He never seems to have been picked. Ah well.
