    There's been a lot of talk on social media and forums that Rick Parfitt is the first Band Aid singer to have perished so this has inspired me to put a Band Aid thread together. I'm only counting the stars who performed on the actual record so no entry for Bowie who only did his bit for Live Aid.

    Gary Burgess mostly quits work to start "focusing on his health", i.e. puts himself on the clock, though I would guess it's nothing immediate:


    Any relation to Guy?

    Do you not think she is a good choice?

    A wonderful choice in my opinion. I thought the BBC would make a shite choice of Brandreth, Merton, Hancock or even Jenny Eclair who was mentioned somewhere along the line. I think Stephen Fry was in the mix but he is too busy being famous/ill I presume. Rock on Ms Perkins.

    Wait you didn't spent the entire year pretending you didn't own a phone like we all did in Scotland dodging Track and Trace like fuck?


    You are perfectly correct r.e the age gap. I'm not sure why my adopted countrymen chose to identify themselves as these fine individuals but that's just my experience. 


    If they were Deathlisters they wouldn't have made such a faux pas getting their serial killers mixed up like that :o



    1. I do not own a phone apart from a landline. 

    2. Don't understand the rest.

    If he dies today, he won't even make the front pages tomorrow given the England final!

    There was an apparent Virgin birth a couple of thousand years ago. Not sure the Virgin death ever made the history books.
