    Passed-Punks & No-Wavers

    Tim was a lovely man and, like Tim Smith, very unlucky with health obstacles. Rest in peace.

    British Character Actors

    Peter Geeves (born 1955), best known as Tango's Orange Man, dead according to a tweet from someone who says Geeves was his brother-in-law (it seems legit). Various parts in 80s-90s sitcoms and films including Muppet Treasure Island.

    Love to all my fellow DLers who have joined since 2019 and love lists.

    1. Dick Van Dyke

    New video of DVD reading a poem by Rod Serling. He seems to be on really excellent form.

    2. Henry Kissinger

    That’s the worst I’ve ever heard his voice, though I guess that’s to be expected. Perhaps this is off-topic but does anyone know exactly why people’s voices go like that in extreme old age?

    RIP the namesake of one of the best early Cardiacs songs

    The Welsh

    I mentioned it on the DDP thread but it didn't get much discussion. I think it's a big no because there's a rule that states obits must be in written English. Understandable but a bit frustrating in a so-near-but-so-far way, cos there are obituaries that don't count despite being published by the BBC on the BBC News website and written in an official language of the UK.

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    Bugger! One of my picks, Cledwyn Jones, is already dead. Died in October and I never saw! What do I do? https://www.bbc.co.uk/cymrufyw/63326738

    The Welsh

    Oh bugger! Cledwyn Jones died in October aged 99 and I missed it and put him on my DDP list. Tamping! As I expected, he got a Welsh-language BBC Cymru obit but nothing in English. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cymrufyw/63326738

    The Beatles Death Curse

    So soon after Brian Casser. With the loss of those two, I think that's near enough all of the vocalists of the most prominent early Merseybeat bands outside of the Beatles gone. Rory Storm (Rory Storm and the Hurricanes) died in 1972. Johnny Sandon (fronted the Searchers up to 1961) died in 1996. Brian O'Hara (The Fourmost) died in 1999. Johnny Hutchinson, Adrian Barber and Johnny Gustafson (The Big Three) died in 2019, 2020 and 2014, respectively. Gerry Marsden (Gerry & the Pacemakers) and Colin Manley (The Remo Four) died in 2020.

    43. Michael Parkinson

    I do. I'm sure we all have names we would prefer but Parky looks awful, very different even to his pre-pandemic self.

    Steven Tyler

    He's being sued for alleged historic child sex abuse. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/dec/30/aerosmith-steven-tyler-lawsuit-sexual-battery-assault

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    I expect my risky picks of Phyllis Kinney and Cledwyn Jones will be unique (both performers well-known in Wales in the 1940s and 50s) but probably nothing else.
