    The Beatles Death Curse

    As I can't find another musician with the name I'll suggest that this is a death notice for the Ray Swinfield who played flute on Penny Lane: http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/236611/swinfield If so, he also played on music heard on Mr Benn and the soundtrack for Chicago, played with Johnny Dankworth's Orchestra and recorded music with Roy Castle and separately the Play Away presenters.

    Syria

    I was at university when we were discussing the plight of the Kurds and by jingo that was a long time ago. Now it appears that USA has become a party to possible genocide, standing aside and looking on as Turkey does what it has always wanted to do. ISIS fighters will dissipate across the globe, Turkey will turn its face to Russia and Iran if the USA threatens repercussions. There's no up side. I wonder when the people and politicians of USA wake up and find their Commander In Chief only does things in foreign policy which assists Russian ambitions. And we thought Bush Jnr was bad, but at least he was a patriot.

    Nope. I'm assuming it's a groovy beat, on principle I'm not about to start listening to them now. Ha!

    49. Ginger Baker

    I'll admit that in all my years on the planet, I've never once heard a Cream track. However I've been aware of them ever since I got a book out of the library (remember them? Libraries?) on 60s bands when I was around 13/14 and there they were mentioned. Imo, this is a bit of a lucky strike for the Committee given Ginger was gigging about last year. I think they needed an ingredient for the List, and suddenly Ginger becomes the dominant flavour. But a hit is a hit.

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2019

    The Deathlist Cup is overrunning and punters are still round the bookies looking up at the screens to see which team will win. So while everyone is distracted and not paying attention, I'm throwing open the doors of the Deathlist Casino for the Third Annual Poker Tournament! Will Joey Russ attain greatness, or will most of his hits come from his subs bench - again? Who can stop Death Impends making it a total hat trick and take the title for the third year in a row? Just pick 25 names (and a maximum of 5 subs) who will cash in their chips on or before December 31st. There is a new rule to add to the fun! Yes...fun.....!!! The tables are being brushed down, the croupiers are back (on the minimum wage, obviously), the chips are pristine and the packs will be broken open come July 1st. So get your thinking caps on and join the gamblers at the table!

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2019

    Just like The Master, the sound of drums was too much for Ginger Baker. Two players had him as a sub. Yorkshire Banker draws 2 Diamonds - 2 Points added. Death By Arsenic draws 6 Diamonds - 6 Points added. Leaderboard updated.
