    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Mo Hayder, Queen of Fear, has died at age 59 from motor neurone disease. Sad, I have read several of her books. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/jul/29/novelist-mo-hayder-dies-aged-59-from-motor-neurone-disease

    Oh yes, a real A-list celebrity in our countries. He certainly lived, ate and drank well, but looks very fit for his 90 years. I could imagine he would live a few more years. I agree with @msc on that

    The Ledehosen, of course That and the S.O.S cover. The song was fun at that time but now it is just crap.

    The D-A-CH-DeathList 2021

    This is really a sad one... He was a gentleman and very funny, an intellectual with knowledge and interest in pop culture. And he discovered Kate Bush for the German music market. A cook and a gay icon. We really owe him a lot. R.I.P. Bio. https://twitter.com/ARD_Presse/status/1418486403567083527?s=20

    I live about 1.5 hours from one hot spot. It rained incredibly hard here and my train home from work took over an hour longer than usual, it was great chaos. But I made it home !!! However, many colleaguesfrom work live in this area and had no electricity and no connection to the outside for a day. Nothing seems to have happened to anyone I know, but overall it's a major tragedy, yes. Meanwhile, 103 dead

    The DL Prediction Game 2021

    Oh dear, it is such a drought these days that keep me falling asleep, that I totally missed Dilip Kumar as a hit for chilean way, Steve, theoldlady and The Quim Reaper. And the mother of French legend Catherine Deneuve, Renée Simonot, has died on the 11th of July and is a solo hit for Dying Probably. Congrats @all!

    The D-A-CH-DeathList 2021

    Bill Ramsey has died at age 90. https://beta.musikwoche.de/details/461670 Original from Cincinnatti, Ohio, were he sang Jazz, Swing and Blues, he came to Germany in the early 50s and served with the US Air Force. During this time period, he appeared in Jazz clubs and was discovered and hired to entertain troops, getting a record deal later. Among Ramsey’s hits published in the 1950s and 1960s were German-language cover versions of Fats Domino, Hank Williams, Beatles and Elvis Presley songs, but he will always be remained as a German Schlager singer, I guess. His two German No.1-hits were "Souveniers" (1959) and "Pigalle" (1961), also very popular were "Wumba-Tumba-Schokoladeneisverkäufer" (1959 #4), "Zuckerpuppe aus der Bauchtanztruppe" (1961 #5) and of course "Ohne Krimi geht die Mimi nie ins Bett" (1962 #3). In the second half of the 1960s Ramsey took up predominantly English-language songs and dedicated himself again to jazz and blues which weren't that successful in the mainstream. Since he became a German citizen in 1984, he would have been a perfect match for this fine list, if we had known this before. Arrrggghhh.
