    The 7th Death of 2018

    Javier Perez de Cuellar until the day he dies

    Life In Prison

    If you look at the biographies of serial killers like Dennis Nilsen and the child murderer Robert Black, and the sort of shit they were getting away with in the 80s, there's simply no way they could get away with that kind of thing nowadays. Not possible at all, the world has moved on far too much for that kind of thing to happen again. Technology in the 80s, and even the 90s, was like in another universe compared to what we have nowadays. A completely different world. In 2018 anyone with a smartphone can be tracked instantly. In the 80s and 90s, it was like the stone age in comparison. Oh yeah and another missed hit for me. I thought about including Dennis Nilsen but went for Josef Fritzl instead, had to include at least one sick fuck on my list.

    Close To The End

    I personally include krautrock as a form of prog or prog-ish music, so I thought I would just post this here: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/may/07/all-gates-open-story-of-can-rob-young-irmin-schmidt-review This article states that Damo Suzuki of Can has got colon cancer. I was aware that he had been ill, but didn't know it was cancer. One to watch for 2019 maybe? I also have Irmin Schmidt, the keyboardist from Can who is 81 this month, on my own personal list this year - stupidly I put him where Mark E. Smith should have been!

    The Dead of 2018

    It really has been a very busy week for celebrity deaths - we've had a US first lady, an English 90s TV presenter, a world famous Swedish DJ, a comedy midget actor, and the last person in the world to be born in the 19th century all croak it in the same week! The grim reaper must have been working overtime this week

    Biggest Misses By The Committee 2018

    It's not every day you get a death of a name you first heard in the Guinness Book of Records rather than Wikipedia. Should have been on this year's list

    I think he will go this year and probably quite soon

    Well said. One thing the world would be better off without is religious fanaticism, and that applies to all religions not just Christianity

    That is quite likely actually. Just seeing how he had declined physically from when I saw him live in October 2016 compared with the footage of him in a wheelchair from November 2017 reminded me of the deterioration typical of the awful illness that is cancer. Not good, but not in any way surprising either given his lifestyle!

    Cause of death confirmed: http://www.nme.com/news/music/mark-e-smith-cause-of-death-2240666 I suspected it was cancer actually, and turns out I was right.

    Thoughts On The 2018 List

    I really underestimated how ill Mark E. Smith actually was. I saw him live in October 2016, and while he certainly didn't look good back then, he definitely didn't look at death's door either. Can you blame me for making the mistake I did?

    50. Mark E Smith

    He looks like shit. I saw him in October 2016 and he was bad, but nowhere near THAT bad. A lifetime of booze and fags has obviously taken its toll!

    50. Mark E Smith

    Oh right! Well anyway, here's my feelings... Sad? Yeah, I used to listen to The Fall a lot in my student days (early noughties), and saw him in concert around that time and again in 2016. How time flies. Legends like him will never be replaced Surprised? No, not really surprised at all. He looked like shit in recent photos, probably even worse than Wetton did during his wedding and Christmas photos in late 2016 shortly before he died. Kicking myself for not putting him on my own shadow list? You bet.
