    50. Shane MacGowan

    Dear Death List, Surely a prime candidate for imminent demise and worthy of a place on next years Death List is former Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan. Shane is looking in pretty poor shape these days and seems to be unable to wean himself off drink and drugs. Shane has been abusing his body for years and it's high time he shuffled off this mortal coil. Yours sincerely, James G

    2. Henry Kissinger

    Former US. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, had an angioplasty procedure earlier this week and is now resting at home. He has experienced heart trouble for several years since suffering a heart attack in October 2000 and undergoing a bypass operation the following year. At 81 and in frail health could he soon be kissing death? Kissinger undergoes heart procedure

    15. Rosalynn Carter

    https://www.ajc.com/news/jimmy-and-rosalynn-carter-won-attend-barbara-bush-funeral/LWARHUcmLv9y3MiNJrqSrI/ I was surprised to see that former american first lady, wife of ex US President Jimmy Carter didn't seem to have her own dedicated thread as other first ladies like Nancy Reagan and Barbara did. Anyway as I was researching the attendees of Barbara Bushes funeral online I found out that Rosalynn and her hubby won't be attending. (in his case because of a long standing engagement overseas I think) But part of the reason that Rossalyn isn't attending is because she is still not sufficiently recovered from intestinal surgery in February. Sure a slow recovery is to be expected in senior years but nevertheless I think it's enough to prompt her own dedicated thread rather than one shared with other first ladies. Possibly one to watch and a likely name on next year's official list by the committee.

    Alex Higgins (And Snooker)

    I know that last time there was an Alex Higgins thread it turned into a rant fest. So this is more general question, which I suspect will get very few answers-Aren't there a ton of sick and dying snooker players Joe O'Boye, the Francisco's, etc . Suspect this will prove to be a thread to nothing but.......?

    Lone Rhinoceros

    Being that the entire species (all variations) may well be extinct in our children's' lifetimes, I figured we could count them down, 1 by 1. We lost two bloody black rhinos just this month. Denver Zoo officials are mourning the loss of a 21-year-old black rhinoceros after the animals health caused the zoo to euthanize him. Zoo officials say since 2014 they have tried 20 different procedures and therapies to alleviate the critically endangered animals foot problems, including customized boots. Mshindi was born at the zoo in 1993. His name means warrior or champion in Swahili. The rhino was taught to hold a paint brush in his mouth and create paintings that were then sold to raise money for rhino conservation.

    21. Joss Ackland

    I am aware of the British Character Actors thread but I thought it was time to set Ackland up with his own thread. He was born in 1928, so he may be one to keep an eye on. Possibly one for the 2021 DL.

    Annette Funicello

    Annette Funicello - 63 years old, has had MS since 1987. Starred in the "Beach Movies" of the '60s, and a few other flicks along the way. She had brain surgery in 1999 to slow down tremors to her brain from the MS. Probably a bit too American, but it's worth a shot.

    With news of his Dementia diagnosis being made public and his likely future appearances on the List I have opened a thread for him.

    Martti Ahtisaari

    Thread for discussion about Martti Ahtisaari, former Finnish president (1994-2000), peace negotiator and global elder emeritus. Ahtisaari is overweight and recently survived COVID-19. He or his wife Eeva have not been seen in public much since that. He's one of the five global elder emeriti along with Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Fernando Cardoso and Ela Bhatt.

    Captain Tom Moore

    The captain is walking round his garden in aid of the NHS. Originally to raise a thousand £££'s now stands at over £8m. Only famous in in his own backyard, but will no doubt get a QO when he snuffs it. Will he make it to the ton?

    Ronnie Corbett

    Just saw Cat O`Falks post about there not being a thread for Ronnie Corbett which I found surprising given his age notability and high profile collpase. Anyway he is of course best known for his role in the Two Ronnies and the sitcom Sorry! and is considered widely to be a "national treasure".He collapsed in a restaurant 3 years ago.He also spent several days in hospital last year after suffering chest pains.He also vehemently dismissed rumours of his retirement last year but I haven`t seen him on TV since Rolf Harris was convicted.I would be surprised if he went this year or next but he is nearly 85 and not been in the rudest of health so certainly one to keep on the radar. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2541730/It-goodnight-getting-new-knee-Ronnie-Corbett-came-close-death-collapsed-having-joint-replacement.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/10700961/Ronnie-Corbett-suffers-chest-pains.html http://www.croydonadvertiser.co.uk/Ronnie-Corbett-m-fed-retirement-rumours/story-20878060-detail/story.html

    Betty Boothroyd

    Turns 89 next month and has led a stressful political life. No noted ill health but spinsters tend to go downhill quickly. Que me being told that she shouldn’t have her own thread ....

    David Bennett

    First ever recipient of an animals heart. Modern medicine at its finest. Guess they saved his bacon. I wonder how long he's got now. Wasn't famous before the operation, but confident he'll get a QO when he dies.

    Peter Sutcliffe

    The Sun reports that Pete is on hunger strike and well into his 2nd week. http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2005260343,00.html Well, at least he is better at it than Carlos the Jackal! DWB

    Paul O'Grady

    I think Paul O'Grady is brilliant. His show is better than R+J's by miles. I can't wait for it to come back. I loved him as Lily as well. Blankety Blank was great and all the other stuff he did as Lily like 'The Avengers'. Anyone else like him?

    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.

    Piper Laurie

    Thought it was time she got her own thread. Actress and Hollywood royalty Piper Laurie (wiki) turns 90 tomorrow. A surviving star of Hollywood's Golden era, she was nominated for an Oscar three times (Carrie, Children of a Lesser God, and The Hustler). To later audiences, probably best known for playing the scheming villain Catherine Martell on Twin Peaks during the 1990s. She had several acting credits in 2018... but none since. Video interview of her here from March 2021. Looks ok for now but worth keeping an eye on. Picked by 5 teams in the DDP this year.

    Dianne Feinstein

    Pre-historic Senator of California, Dianne Feinstein, sells her estate at Lake Tahoe. Is the couple (she's married to lung cancer survivor billionaire investor Richard Blum) being forced to downsize? https://nypost.com/2021/06/25/dianne-feinstein-lists-41m-lake-tahoe-estate/?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=P6Twitter&utm_medium=SocialFlow

    Yevgeny Prigozhin

    I was really surprised that he didn't have a thread yet. Or a pool. I say July, 21, 2023. I haven't decided if he jumped out a window, shot himself or accidentally poisoned himself.

    Len Goodman

    Len Goodman just came out of surgery for skin cancer. Looks like he wont be needing any further treatment though but I think its probably worth keeping an eye on him for the sake of recurrence https://www.msn.com/en-gb/entertainment/celebrity/strictly-come-dancing-legend-len-goodman-has-surgery-for-skin-cancer-scare/ar-BB18gvgl
