    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    No, it was somebody in a very similar position to Jason Lake. Parents dead, and one had committed suicide. I think. I really would have bet my house on JL offing himself a few years back.

    No, I think it was somebody with a showbiz background, and I'm sure it was no more than five years ago. I'm allowing for time always passing quicker than I think, so probably less.

    Nah, it just moved to France.

    I don't think you're attracting many friends.

    Boris Johnson

    Oh, OK. Never heard the word, it doesn't seem to have travelled. Anyway, with a name like Boris, I don't think a nn is really necessary.

    Fernando Ricksen

    It's been heartbreaking to watch Fernando's decline, but heartening to see the courage and humour he showed for so long. Vaarwel, Fernando.

    I expect I'm being slow, but can you explain the nickname "Bawjaws" ?

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Just realised I achieved an interesting double yesterday. Seeing 'Rocking All Over The World' performed in Hyde Park by 1. The man who wrote it, assisted by Bruce Springsteen. 2. The band who are most associated with it. The first time I saw Status Quo, the song hadn't even been written

    Dead Pop Stars

    A very powerful song, sung here by an uncredited Aimée Mann in a tense scene from The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    I had it in my head that their son had died by suicide several years ago. Who might I be thinking of? Someone with a similar story/background?
  17. Looks like I missed all the fun here today.

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Well, that was fun. Relatively easy to get good spots too. Mercifully Tragically Westlife only got a 30 minute slot, but Quo were good value as always and PSBs were excellent. On iplayer apparently, so judge for yourselves. I took the dog to church this morning as there was a Pet Blessing Service, so what with that and seeing the Pet Shop Boys there was a pleasing symmetry to the day. I like a good singalong : All Things Bright & Beautiful this morning, It's A Sin this evening.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Why? It seems perfectly innocuous. I suspect this is another case of reading things into a title that simply aren't there. See also 'Little Children' by Billy J. Kramer. She was only sixteen, only sixteen I loved her so She was too young to fall in love And I was too young to know. We'd laugh and we'd sing, and do little things That made my heart glow She was too young to fall in love And I was too young to know. Why did I give my heart so fast? It never will happen again Coz I was a mere lad of sixteen I've aged a year since then. She was only sixteen, only sixteen With eyes that would glow She was too young to fall in love And I was too young to know.
  20. "Political frailty" is a figure of speech. In the context of Deathlist thread titles, it's a pun. You aren't meant to take it literally
  21. If you go back to the birth of the thread, you'll see it was mostly foreign actors, from non-Anglophone countries.
  22. Again, this is a politician, so would be more appropriately posted in Political Frailty I acknowledge that politics is mentioned in the thread title, but the original intent of the thread was persons connected with the arts.
