    Hugh Bonneville

    He is regularly alluded to in Popbitch and similar. Feels like there are a fair few stories yet to see the light of day.

    50. Captain Tom Moore

    A Steve Irwin award, done-in by what made him famous.

    Tony Blair

    Been wracking my brains to work out who he reminded of over the last day or two...

    Thought I'd start a thread for the musical and cultural phenomenon of Madchester seeing as many of the scene's movers and shakers are now entering their 60's, hoovered up vast amounts of drugs at the time, and are highly obitable. Triggered by watching this video and having a gasp at the state of Mike Pickering (Hacienda DJ, M People) - skip to 4.30. He looks terrible. On the other hand most of New Order look pretty good (although Bernard is now morphing into the old bloke who sits in the same chair in the pub every weekday afternoon nursing a pint of bitter, reading the paper and occasionally reminiscing about his time working for the local bus company).

    Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    Well there's no doubt that Bobby's got his dad's genes - what a spitting image.

    James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

    I really hope that one of the main channels has the gumption to carry on with the 7-Up series until there's nobody left either willing/able to particpate or alive. It's a huge achievement in TV, another British classic from the days of visonary programming where content and idealism were considered ideal for prime time audiences - who were not treated like dribbling cretins.

    Phil Collins (And Other Genesis Types)

    On a segue, he gets a lot of unjustified stick (from 'trendy' white people, it has to be said - a lot of black folks seem to be much more appreciative of his solo music, irony of ironies). The following episode of This American Life (Dr Phil) is a wonderful listen, a girl writes a song about her break-up and gets to speak to PC about what he thinks of her effort; he comes out really well, no superstar bullshit and seems like a genuinely self-effacing good guy - https://www.thisamericanlife.org/339/break-up

    Britney Spears, Kerry Katona, Heather Locklear et al.

    That's two of three originals gone crackers then. Siobhan, the ginger lass - IIRC the tale - had a breakdown during a gig and escaped via climbing out of the window in the ladies loo and scampering off into the night. Even if that isn't true, it's still a great story...

    Donald J Trump

    More like Israel bombing the bejezsus out of Iranian military and nuclear facilities in the next few days with Trump's support as a final 'fuck you' to the mullahs. Let's see.
