    Ozzy Osbourne

    So, his final chart placing could be well up in the DDP Drop 40, then Pedigree's strong enough to give him broadsheet obits, surely
  2. Bit harsh IMHO - and the counter-argument starts by asking who other than Neil Young made and anti gulf war album and then toured it right through the territories of the USA in which the most support for that war was to be found? Seriously, everyone with a reputation amongst his generation was raging about Vietnam but most of them did the corporate whore bit early this century and shut up about Bush heading into Iraq and Afghanistan. So we assume Dylan, Springsteen, etc. all that that conflict a good idea, right?
  3. Young's still standing up to everyone Just ditched the sponsor for his Hyde Park gig next year over their involvement in fossil fuel extraction. Making it - kind of - obvious that anyone else of his stature could ditch the sponsor too. Notably the gig in question is a double-header with Dylan (who appears to have no opinion on Barclaycard!)

    MMMDP 2018

    In good time to revive this thread and drag the list of talent to the top, again Some of whom may see 2019 action. I note my pick remains alive

    Richard Overton

    Two months back from illness - he's got some strength left, then - but a widely popular pick for the dead pools that don't penalise us for picking the oldies.

    Advent Avalanche 2018

    Congratulations Banana - decent dead pooling!

    The Dead of 2018

    Good spot - I'd forgotten she was still alive

    Stairway To Heaven/ Highway To Hell

    Shame If he straddled The Pushbike Song and No More Heroes he'd have been one hell of a musician

    Deathrace 2019

    Is he related to Val Doonican?

    UFOs, Space Aliens and the like

    One of the more substantial UFO cases - three witnesses, physical effects etc. - The Cash Landrum encounter from late 1980 (actually happened the day after the most widely accepted date for the Rendlesham Forest case) is the subject of the latest Skeptoid podcast. It's one of those - like the 1976 Tehran incident - that leaves the debunkers breaking sweat though Brian Dunning does give it a good mauling in the podcast.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Aye, well... Peace and drugs are tempting to the point they'd all want to stick around. Baez was never that bad a druggie, she might well see some youngers pretenders out of the game.

    Captain Beefheart

    Sad Trout Mask Replica is 50 years old next year - recorded in March - released 16 June Still sounds more challenging and inspired than most of the stuff it inspired

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    An immense undertaking - as always I salute your insanity and willingness as I busily compile the masterlist for the modest Deathrace (currenly comprised of picks from three teams)

    Britney Spears, Kerry Catona, Heather Locklear et al.

    Likely asked her over a fried Mars Bar and a bottle of the "Bru" FFS - she's still bound for the gutter at this rate

    Jonathan King

    Yeah, but you're only as old as the age you feel!
