    Wrestlers/actors

    About time a wrestler was included onto the list. Has one ever appeared before? We've lost a lot of stars from the 80's these past few years, so I'm suprised the committee haven't taken a punt on an early wwf era name.

    Hospitalised!

    Decent band, The Blasters. Contributed to the soundtrack of Tarantino's 'From Dusk Til Dawn' . One of the best film soundtracks imo.

    Freddie Starr

    Good point. I've found that the coverage of celebrity deaths on BBC news and Sky News have been far more minimal the past couple of years. Some big names barely get a mention. Maybe they tired of such stories after 2016. Barbara Bush was a prime example last year, she had a one minute segment then it cut back to brexit malarkey.

    How many hits this year?

    You can have zilch for months then have a week with three hits, comes and goes.

    Maybe you should fire out some of those silver spheres to speed things up.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    People that are newer to this are just comparing this year to the past 2 or 3 because of the rate of big hits. There's actually nothing unusual about 2019 and big names have gone like Keith Flint and Albert Finney, just that they didn't happen to appear on the list. I think it'll be a 2009 repeat with somebody of Michael Jackson level fame going in the summer accompanied by a host of less famous names but still newsworthy.
