    Dave Swarbrick (And Fairport Convention)

    Always a good sign that your time is nearly up is winning a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'. Dave Swarbrick, former violinist with Fairport Convention, received one this week at the BBC Folk Awards. Unfortunately Dave was too ill to receive his award in person! Swarb, rather surprisingly, has already passed the famousness test, by having an obituary written in the Daily Telegraph a couple of years ago. (Oops). His poor health (mainly self-inflicted it has to be said) has included 2 tracheotomies in the last few years, and he is now confined to a wheelchair with oxygen mask (see also Marlon Brando). Keep an eye on him. DWB

    Marlon Brando

    80 years old and in the Daily Mail today: in a wheelchair with some breathing apparatus and a plethora of life supporting medical devices beneath the chair. It looks like he might of even had a tracheotomy, but I didn't see the picture for long enough. No doubt DWB can advise further on this, as he is a reader of this paper Recent scares: In 2001 he had to pull out of "Scary Movie 2" owing to ill health (pneumonia).

    Jerry Lewis

    I saw a picture of the rubber faced comedian (77) earlier in the week, and boy does he look in a bad way! Just released from hospital, after ballooning to 110Kg from an adverse reaction to SPAM, which he was taking to treat pulmonary fibrosis... A quick background check shows he's been declining in health over the last few of years, suffering from viral meningitis, diabetes, chronic back pain, addiction to painkillers, a heart attack and prostate cancer. If he can keep this performance going for the rest of the year, I think he's a good candidate for the 2005 list.

    Elizabeth Taylor

    Im currently compiling a list of 5 celebs to enter into my Boyfriends Death Lottery and Elizabeth Taylor was a top pick. However, she is not mentioned on this site. I cant believe she isnt close to croking so have I missed something? Is she dead already?

    Rikki Fulton

    I know it's easy to be wise after the event but how was a 79 year old with Alzheimer's disease missed?

    Larry Hagman

    Heard that Larry Hagman (J.R. from "Dallas") was dead. Can anyone confirm this? (Links to articles?) What was the cause of death?

    Stephen Hawking

    I thought at first the abuse, suggested in the papers, his wife was dishing out on the poor old professor might lead to his downfall, but I am now of the opinion that he will now be more carefully watched by his army of helpers . . . but you never know! DWB

    Words And Deedes

    sorry to have to report, but W. F. Deedes was pictured on the front page of Saturday's Torygraph somewhere in Africa where he'd been sent on assignment. And, although there was a cheetah in the photo with him, alas its jaws were not wrapped around the old boy's throat like wot happened to Roy out of Sigfriend and Roy.

    Pat "bomber" Roach

    What is it with celebrities that choose to withhold information regarding their health? He has withheld the fact that he has cancer for the last 3 years. According to yesterday's News of the World, his days are nubmered. http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/story_page.../showbiz5.shtml

    Ronnie Biggs

    Could he be the first death this year, after news today that he has suffered a major heart attack? Report in today's London Evening Standard states from his friend that he is desperately ill. Prison sources state that Biggs is "stable" Will he, won't he?

    Glyn Worsnip - Photo Update

    At last after all these desperate years of searching, I've finally found a picture of Glyn Worsnip. Glyn left the planet in 1996, headed for Cerebellar Ataxia armed with the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and a sweater wearing companion by the name of Doc Cox. Indeed, even Patrick Moore thought Cerebellar Ataxia was a rare constellation when he was approached and secretly filmed for a episode of the notorious Brasseye series, that to date has never been shown on british television. Channel 4 hold the episodes fate in their hands. Thats Life. Don't panic! Publicity photograph: Worsnip & 'Doc' Cox, Interstellar shenanigans; The search for Cerebellar Ataxia, 1996. Reminding us that universal hitch-hiking is not safe and can be dangerous.

    Ronald Reagan

    Email just received at DeathList HQ: PWB says: "Strongly disagree with the designation of "idiot" for one of the greatest Presidents of the United States." Sadly PWB doesnt suggest an alternative description, but we're open to suggestions. Obviously Ronnie did make some great contributions in his time - for instance where would we be today without the "Star Wars" project?? Everyone still happy with "idiot" or is it time for a change?

    Saddam Hussein

    Would there be a call to put Saddam on the list for next year? He may be executed for his past actions?

    Frankie Laine

    Frankie Laine - aged 90 with a illustious recording career and two heart bypasses under his belt. Can't last for ever, love and kisses little sister

    George Best

    Experienced many personal difficulties in 2003 after a highly publicised return to the bottle. I think he could be a prime candidate for 2004.

    Claude Levi-Strauss

    I note that Prof Claude Levi-Strauss is celebrating his 95th birthday today. He was on the 2002 list but I think he deserves another chance for 2004. In all the years of Deathlist we've never successfully picked an anthropologist so I reckon its about time we got one! Oh and hes French too - so thats a bonus!

    Edward Heath

    http://www.deathlist.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/cool.png I think a near-certainty for next year is former Tory PM Ted Heath. Given the fact he's now in to his eighties, overweight and fresh from a recent(ish) health scare his inclusion would seem wise.

    Emlyn Hughes

    In case this chap has slipped through your net, Emlyn Hughes, former Liverpool and England soccer captain from the 70s has brain cancer, which is almost always fatal. A good bet for next year I reckon. WDYT?

    Michael Jackson

    What do people think about MJ doing himself in over these allegations. Just a thought. I mentioned to MR STATS last year that Aaron Spelling had an incurable disease and that he should be included. At present i'm unable to gather any other information on his health. Does anyone know any more??

    Billy Graham

    85 - well past average life expectancy - and could pop his clogs soon.

    Peter Ustinov

    Peter Ustinov is a good candidate for impending lack of life. Having seen recent documentaries about his life and career it's obvious he's looking very frail. He can't get around without the aid of a couple of sticks and he seems rather vulnerable. Surely a higher place (top 10) next year for the British film hero? A sure bet for 2004 methinks.

    Sir Patrick Moore

    He will be 81 next march and is in very frail health. He's just published his autobiography in which he reveals that he doesn't expect to live much longer and has organised his wake and prepared a (very witty) post-death taped funeral speech to his friends. He can no longer walk without the aid of two sticks and says his body has started shutting down. A decent bet?

    Alexander Solzhenitsyn

    Hello my darlings Did you know that Alexander Solzhenitsyn was still alive? Well he is. He's 85 and feeling a bit peeky Death comes to us all wearing Pixie Boots

    Rodney Dangerfield

    Hello my death list darlings I am ever so keen on that gorgeous charmer Rodney Dangerfield, what a man, what a hunk, what a dead cert for 2004. Any views yourselves? Death comes to us all wearing pixie boots
