    Françoise Hardy

    It is about time there was a specific thread for this French music icon. She has been fighting laryngeal cancer for years and has recently lost the ability to sing, owing to effects of cancer treatments. In the below recent article, it explains how Hardy now needs help going to the toilet and is in a very fragile state at the moment, according to her son. https://www.public.fr/Elle-a-des-gens-pour-la-toilette-Francoise-Hardy-affaiblie-par-la-maladie-son-quotidien-est-devenu-un-enfer-Un-proche-balance-1750927 And in the following even more recent article, it is revealed Hardy feels too tired to come to see her son. https://www.lefigaro.fr/musique/thomas-dutronc-s-inquiete-pour-sa-mere-francoise-hardy-elle-se-sent-trop-fatiguee-c-est-complique-20221201

    Michael Mosley

    TV's Dr Michael Mosley has been reported missing on the Greek island of Symi. No signs of him and his representatives are "very worried".

    John Lewis

    One of the most famous and popular congressman, John Lewis, has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He is also a civil rights icon in America. I believe he is deserving to be on the list next year.
  4. Unless you've been living in a cave where you had no access to any sort of media, you probably heard that good old OJ Simpson has been found GUILTY of armed robbery and kidnapping. What say you, OJ? Will OJ finally drop the soap?

    Frank Field

    As suggested... Baroness Meacher today announced to the House of Lords that Frank Field, now known as Lord Field of Birkenhead (wiki), 79, is dying (BBC link). She revealed that he had recently spent time in a hospice and a very reliable Labour friend of mine (same source who told me Sir Gerald Kaufman was dying) says he has aggressive stage 4 cancer (though doesn't know what type of cancer). Field started life out as a member of the Conservative Party, before defecting to Labour in 1960. He was elected as a councillor in Hounslow in 1964 and served for 4 years. He was first elected as an MP (for the constituency of Birkenhead) in 1979. He lost his seat in 2019, owing to the fact that he fell out with the Corbyn leadership of the Labour Party over anti-semitism (the "final straw" according to the man himself, though he had tensions with the party for years). He was forced to stand as an independent, but only captured over 7000 votes. He served as the Minister of Welfare Reform under Tony Blair from 1997 to 1998, his only ministerial position. In 2010, Field became the only Labour MP with a role in David Cameron's government, after being appointed "poverty tsar". He later served as Chair of the Work and Pensions Select Committee from 2015 to 2019, succeeding Dame Anne Begg. He was elevated to the House of Lords in October 2020, and he chose to sit as a non-affiliated member. Somewhat of a legend in the world of politics, and respected on all sides of the political spectrum. Field is from a generation of Old Labour types where it was never deemed acceptable to come out as gay. He's also a firm believer in Brexit, and was one of only a handful of Labour MPs to share this view in the 2017–2019 Parliament (along with Dennis Skinner, Kate Hoey, maybe a couple of others). In my opinion, a must for DL 2022.

    Shameless cut and paste from the Popbitch mailout this morning: Don't believe a word of it myself.

    Kenneth Kaunda

    Being a little prescient and considering the love of DL for old African bad guys (Hastings Banda, Bobby Mugs, Daniel arap Moi) I think Kenny's inclusion on next year's list is quite likely if he makes it. President of Zambia since its independence for 27 years, and the last recognizable "founding father/tyrant" of an African Country (Sam Nujoma apart), he has been suffering from ill health at least since 2016, when he was mistakenly reported as dead. Anyway here we are four years later; all the African dictators born in 1924 have been wiped out except for Kenny. Last week he got nominated for Nobel Prize for Peace and today he expresses his condolences for his "dear friend" Moi. Health updates quite regular and birthdays always celebrated, so thread won't be empty till death, I think.

    Charles Aznavour

    Until I glanced at the list this morning, I always thought Charles Aznavour was dead.

    Edmund Hillary

    I'm from New Zealand - stick Sir Edmund Hillary back up for next year, let's just hope he holds out until then! Also, what about Nelson Mandela?

    Richard M. Sherman

    Richard M. Sherman, one of the incredibly prolific songwriting duo "The Sherman Brothers" (alongside his late older brother Robert, who passed away aged 86 in 2012) is 95 in June is definitely thread-worthy. With his brother he wrote "It's a small world (after all)", which is allegedly the most publicly-performed song of all time, as well as songs for Mary Poppins (such as "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Chim Chim Cher-ee", the latter of which won them an Oscar), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Charlotte's Web, among a vast many others. He is definitely DL-level famous, and, at 94, old enough to start being considered for the main list. Intriguing fact: He attended Beverly Hills High School at the same time as noted German-American musician Andrew Preview, or André Previn, who duetted with him at their 1946 graduation.

    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.......?

    Gudrun Ure

    She might not have made the cut for the 2014 DeathList but I feel Gudrun Ure deserves her own thread. So there.

    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.

    49. Franz Beckenbauer

    Greatest German footballer to ever live, now in poor health and unable to attend both the World Cup and Pelé's funeral. Though he is very private on his health issues, he has recently revealed he is "doing well considering his condition", which is not so reassuring. Also looking very thin and yellowish. 80 seems a tall order.
  19. This is a bit "left-field", but Leonid Stadnick (Ukraine) should be considered for forthcoming DealthLists. Although he's only in his late 30s, he is currently the world's tallest man. His height appears to have now stopped at 8 ft 5ins, although earlier estimates have gauged him as reaching 9ft+. I'm not sure what happened over the last year to stop his growth, but THINK he had brain surgery (or treatment) to suppress a pituatry anomoly. From documentaries etc, he appears in pretty good health, however the increased mileage of bloodflow around his body places a huge burden on his heart. Personally, I hope he bucks the Giantism trend (of dying young).

    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?

    Osama Bin Laden

    I'm surprised Osama bin Laden wasn't on this year's deathlist. While he's proven pretty resilient since getting more than he bargained for post-911, I'd say with a US election in November, there's a good chance the Americans will manage to blow up whatever mountain hole Osama is squirreled away in. And in the end, that's probably good news for him, what with all those virgins waiting for him in the afterlife . . .

    Sir Harold Wilson

    Sir Harold Wilson, the Labour politician who served as Prime Minister from 1964 to 1970 and 1974 to 1976 is 96. How many people think he'll live until 100? Can we get a health update because I haven't heard what he's doing in a while? He's had Alzheimers since the late 1980's so he can't be that well off.

    Hugo Chavez

    According to this story, professional voice of reason Pat Robertson is calling for the Venezuelan President Hugo Sanchez to be assassinated. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9047102/ Judging by how the vote went in the last election there's a lot of Robertson's supporters in the red states that Bush won, so maybe W will bow to the demands of his constituents. Although given the CIA couldn't plant, I mean find, any WMD in Iraq I very much doubt their ability to carry out something as simple as offing a Latin American president. Or, maybe we should just nominate Robertson for '06.

    Loretta Lynn

    Felt it was time that arguably one of the legendary Queens of Country and Western music singer Loretta Lynn who recently turned aged 85 had her own thread. Definitely one of the big name figures from this genre of music and she's still touring to this very day! Some random facts about Loretta She was a big supporter and friend of George Bush and his wife Barbara. Campaigned and sang for them when he stood for US President. But she apparently loathed Ronald Reagan and could not bring herself to like him. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loretta_Lynn Has been in the music business for nearly sixty years
