Third hit for my theme team?

Could be another ten day wait like for Kato Havas though.

Mikis Theodorakis hospitalized again due to further heart issues.

 

He can’t have long.  Dilip Kumar going to outlive him lets put it that way.

In this period you don't die even if you get shot twice in the head, run over by a tank and burned with gasoline. What a fucking lame month.

DDP pick Michael Gielen dead at 91. Obits only in German so far, but I assume an English languager will be along in due course.

I really need to sort the theme team league out then, huh? Need to find a way of doing it that's less... fucking tedious than the current method.

Anner Bylsma, an eminent Dutch cellist and a groundbreaking figure in the early music movement, the postwar effort to create performances closer to what past audiences may have actually heard, died on July 25 in Amsterdam. He was 85.

The cause was a cerebral hemorrhage, his family said.

The British conductor and organist, who was knighted in 2019, died peacefully in his hometown of York during the night of Friday 22 November.

The sad news comes after Cleobury had been experiencing a long-term illness.

Latvian Conductor Mariss Jansons dead at 76:

He had been ill for a long time. 

 

For me, it probably kills any intention I had of fielding another classical music theme team.
