A good choice, he's got Emphysema and lung cancer,

 

not to mention having a very unhealthy lifestyle and being obese.

 

I can see him dropping dead while performing his awfully good jazz.

Ah, but he's also just finished a 2-week stint playing at Ronnie Scotts jazz club. Can't be that unwell.

His heart may have just suffered a pounding considering xmas/new year.

He doesnt look the type to gith his heart a rest from Grease and Sugar and Lard and Salt on even a normal occasion.

A very unhealthy lifesytle?- are you also refering to his previous teenage tastes? - i do like being controversial.

Nothing to do with his sexual preferences back then,

 

just the fact he's known to enjoy cannabis and until recently a lot of whisky.

 

Combine that with his obesity and the fact he worked in very unhealthy Jazz club environs for decades.

 

I'm surprised he's still alive.

In common with a lot of people on this year's list I think George Melly is a bit of a wasted contender. See him a lt around the West End and he seems to be in rude health. Overweight yes but miles and miles away from death's door.

He'll go suddenly will George,

 

probably while performing,

 

One second he'll be warbling away, the next they'll be carrying him away feet first.

 

It's the way he'd want to go.

This is the place to discuss George Melly

George and Digby Fairweather's half dozen have just finished a stint at ronnie scott's, who can forget such classics as( Hard hearted hannan ) ( heebie jeebies ) and of course (Fanlight Fanny ) before 2003 he sang with John Chiltons Feetwarmers . :unsure:

I don't get it. Why is a Viz character on the death list?

George is not a Viz character, he's far more entertaining.

 

Roger on the other hand is, and therefore very unfunny.

Recent Article on his health

 

Quite interesting, too.

 

I had no idea who this is, but he certainly sounds like death warmed up.

 

I hope you're not taking my job of finding news articles about DL candidate OoO... I see you have a lot of recent posts in the 2006 names that I haven't gotten to yet... :D:lol:

Perhaps you could draw up a rota, or maybe divide the threads amongst yourselves to avoid duplication of effort? It'd be a shame to have you fall out over who can post the most links. :D

Only this time, CP, just to give you a break. After this, it is back to you for salicious health & death gossip :banghead:

As long as Melly is enjoying working, I think he'd be around for a bit longer and possibly may last the year out. As soon as his illness starts to get to him and he gives up the fight that's when he'll give up the ghost.

Insightful and witty. :D

 

 

Here's another definition of a post whore.

This article is about a month old, but it was the latest I could find on him. It is his last journal entry dated April 20th, 2006.

Seems as if he is a very unstable individual. His wife doesn't trust him with the information regarding his health. He also finds pleasure out of radiation treatment. In the end he seems somewhat optimistic. Though only a few weeks before his death, wasn't Lou Rawls quoted as saying '"Don't count me out, brother'

 

 

I'm feeling rather optimistic...
