  1. Servus, Grüezi und Hallo! Welcome everybody to a little German/Austrian/Swiss pendant to our very beloved bible „DeathList Top 50“ and to its equivalents of the French, the Canadian and the Australian/New Zeelandian DeathList, created by forum users. We, the German forum fellas frleon, gcreptile, Prophet, TomTomTelekom, WEP and Book, created a list of 50 German, Austrian or Swiss people (from the so-called D-A-CH-countries*) of who we think that 2021 could be their final year. *By the way, D-A-CH means D = Deutschland (Germany) A = Österreich (Austria) CH = Schweiz (Switzerland) „Dach“ is the German expression for „roof“. First we collected several names which came to our mind, also of people who were born in the German speaking countries or later became a citizen of that countries. Then everyone selected 50 names and put them in order 1 to 50. First place = 50 points, last place = 1 point. At the end I added up all the points and the result was the German DeathList, now called The D-A-CH-DeathList. I'm sure you'll find some surprise inclusions but also some “obvious misses!” Every obit in the German language is accepted, because dead means dead Maybe this thread could also be used for German deaths generally, like the ones for the Danes or the Slavs or the famous Belgians. So, to cut a long story short: In the next post are the 50 German, Austrian and Swiss people of our very first D-A-CH-List 2021! Thank you for your attention. Enjoy!

    I know the band and some of their songs, but have never heard anything private from the members or read any headlines. The disease was probably completely unknown.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    I read this book almost exactly a year ago and actually found it quite enjoyable. A bit stereotypical, yes, but I didn't have too many expectations either. The book was light fare and kept me entertained while on vacation. At least I didn't remember it so badly that it stopped me from buying the second part (The man who died twice) last week...

    The 9th death of 2022

    There are 3 years in which 4 of the top 5 died (2013, 2016, 2020), but never the top 4 together (only places 2 to 5) or the entire top 5. It is very unlikely to achieve that, but hey, there are still 3,5 months until the end of the year!

  15. Welcome to this fine competition to predict the frontpage of this site: The DeathList Prediction Game 2022! But what is it all about? It's not that hard: What do you think the official DeathList 2022 will look like? Which celebrities will be chosen by the Committee in which order? Please tell us by picking 50 celebrities listing them from No.1 to No. 50. This is the scoring system: +10 points for the exact position +5 points if the person is on the DL 2022 but 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 positions away from the original position +4 points if the person is on the DL 2022 but 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 positions away from the original position +3 points for every newcomer who also entered the DL 2022 +2 points for every returnee who entered the DL again +1 point if the person is on the DL 2022 but more than 10 positions away from the original position 0 points for unique picks -3 points for every pick who is not listed at the DL 2022 Please name 3 extra names/subs in order of priority. Just in case that the replacement is taken, please tell me in which (any) place the sub should be placed. The other places automatically move up or down and close the gap if necessary. The player with the most points will win the DL Prediction Game. But even after this announcement, which will take place on New Year's Day or maybe a little later*, the action is not over because it is exciting and interesting to see, who will win a litte side kick game at the end of 2022: Were you smarter than the Committee? Did you have more hits? Would „your“ list have won? This side kick game will not be included in the DL Hall of Fame. It's just for fun. *Since I'm not at home for New Year's Eve and will probably come back late on New Year's Day, the announcement of the result will be delayed a little, maybe on January 2nd, no later than January 3rd. Hopefully this will also prevent calculation errors. I name this for reasons ... Please send me your DL Prediction Top 50 plus 3 subs through PM until the 31th of December 2021 at 22:59 CET (mainland Europe time 21:59 GMT). All entries are welcome if they include 50 different people in a chosen order from No. 1 to No. 50 (and 3 subs). Thanks for joining!

    Club 27

    As I checked some celebrity birthdays I noticed that actually there are several potential new members for the very famous Club 27 - but there is no topic! This special club contains musicians who died at the age of 27. With the dead of Kurt Cobain in 1994 the idea of the Club 27 was spread out to public because connections were made with the deaths of Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison – musicians who has died between 1969 and 1971 under tragic circumstances. A myth was build around the club and with the dead of Amy Winehouse in 2011 there was a large amount of media attention devoted to the club once again. These five musicians are always credited as the official or the main members of the Club 27 because of their parallel life lines (rock stars, icons, addictions, tragic deaths): Brian Jones (28.02.1942-03.07.1969), guitarist of the Rolling Stones, drowned at the age of 27 years and 125 days Jimi Hendrix (27.11.1942-18.09.1970), influential musician and pioneering guitarist, asphyxiation at the age of 27 years and 295 days Janis Joplin (19.01.1943-04.10.1970), the Queen of Psychedelic Soul, heroin overdose at the age of 27 years and 258 days Jim Morrison (08.12.1943-03.07.1971), poet and singer of The Doors, heart failure/heroin overdose at the age of 27 years and 207 days Kurt Cobain (20.02.1967-05.04.1994), singer/songwriter of Nirvana, suicide by gunshot at the age of 27 years and 44 days Amy Winehouse is often named as an equal member because of her popularity, her addictions and her tragic life: (14.09.1983-23.07.2011), singer/songwriter, alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 years and 312 days Please feel free to pay tribute to other “members” or name the unnamed! Watch out for future members!
