    Class Of 1916

    Are you a betting man? I’d quite like a cheeky £20 when the announcement is made.

    Updated. Surely more of these guys are dead. Anybody know anything? Is Stevie Faye (b. 1927) still with us? He’d be the oldest.

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Put all my faith in de Havilland. Old girl let me down! Cleary hasn’t been heard of much since her 101st. Atkins keeps cropping up now and now. I reckon he’ll win.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    I agree things are dire in the States. However, putting aside that they died back in April when the virus was much more prevalent, they were 83 and 85, and the son looks heavily overweight. Doesn’t put things into perspective beyond what we already know – if you’re old or fat then ‘rona gonna get ya.

    Absolutely. At one point he was never off of the news.

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Helen Yate, British Olympic swimmer supposedly dead at 99. The edit has been reverted but Canadian Paul has scrubbed her off his personal list which tends to confirm it’s true. She was the oldest female British Olympian (and the 2nd oldest overall after Jasper Blackall, who just turned 100).

    Hilary Lister & other sailing nutjobs

    Carlo Rolandi, a prominent name in Italian sailing, dead at 94. Mentioning because he participated in an incredible NINE Olympic Games between 1948 and 1992 – the first six as a competitor, the last three as a jurist.

    UK Singles Chart

    Okay, so here it is. Every artist to have a hit on the UK Singles Chart during the 1950s and 1960s. I may later do the 1970s if this thread is successful. In the meantime, I will post letter by letter and I invite all users and guests to collaborate on any information you have/find. Rules: 1) Artist must have had a hit single within the UK top 75 to be included (though the chart didn't go as high as 75 until 1978). 2) I appreciate that before February 1969, there was no official chart and that NME, Record Mirror etc. had their own charts. As such, I am using the preferred data of The Official Charts Company prior to '69. 3) As far as bands go, the members I've included appeared on the hit singles themselves, to the best of my knowledge. This is where it gets tricky - some bands had many members over the course of their history and information isn't always available for it to be clear who recorded on which hit. I will mark the acts where I'm unsure if the members I've listed are correct. 4) Orchestras, choirs and backing bands etc. won't be included - this is impractical as the research will become exhaustive and the individuals concerned are often so trivial that no information on them exists. So for an act like Ray Anthony and his Orchestra, I'll only cover Ray Anthony. 5) For bio info, same rules apply as Wikipedia. Individuals who are younger than 90 are by default listed as living if no death information is available. Acts who are dead (included groups with no living members) are highlighted in red. I've also hyperlinked all hit singles to their YouTube pages so people can enjoy the music too!

    Thanks. Added those three to Highly Likely. Yeah they were probably all just session musicians anyway. It looks like Hugg, McGuinness and Rivers were the primary ones though. I might have a digger deep Sunday when I’m back at my desk. Hi-Tension. Yes I agree. About 1/3 of the lineup above are not traceable e.g the early saxophonist Sydor. However, from looking at their Twitter/FB pages they have a good habit of alerting fans when an associated member of the group or a relative of a member dies. So there’s a possibility they’re all still about and we’ll hear when the first passes.

    Depends. Isn’t the point of the List to score the most hits per annum and between drops/substitutions, try and minimise misses to the lowest number possible?
  16. Ulitzer95

    Sumner Redstone

    Gates Sr. wasn’t a very imaginative pick but given that he has advanced dementia, I don’t think he should be dropped now. If he doesn’t die this year, he’ll go in 2021. It would just be another miss if he’s switched in with someone else.

    I am not endangering myself for going out for a bloody meal. 1) I had COVID-19 in March, as I mentioned on here at the time. I've since had a private anti-body test and it came back positive as expected. 2) Even if I hadn't already contracted it earlier in the year, I'm perfectly healthy, not in an at-risk category and there is no reason for me to shield. For the vast majority of younger healthy people who get the disease, it's no worse than a seasonal flu. If you choose to live your life in an isolated bubble of paranoia and have fallen victim to the mass media scaremongering, then you're the fool. The economy has to keep running so people like myself can pay for your state handouts.

    Read the sentence again. "I was actually out for a late walk after meeting friends for dinner and I updated the section on my iPhone." Anyway, I've no time for you and I refuse to interact with you again. Go away.

    I was actually out for a late walk after meeting friends for dinner and I updated the section on my iPhone. Meanwhile, you probably have your arse firmly planted at your computer screen all day. And having been blocked as Miracle Aligner, you've created a new account to pointlessly waste your time trying to antagonise people on here. So the joke is very much on you.
