I was researching Nash, CLee, Reagan, Dole, and Kerkorian a couple weeks ago, cuz I wanted some reason to include them next year. Four hours later Nash died; two weeks and Christopher Lee dies. Of the three remaining, Kerkorian is older than dirt.

I vote Kirk.

Refuse to give up on Mugabe. Despite the fact that there is zero empirical evidence that anybody "gets what was coming to them" and that I have failed to correctly predict his death at attempts 1 though 5....

I think Peter Sallis, no evidence just seems to fit with Moody and Lee.

Fidel Castro to continue the big summer of famous deaths.

The big summer of famous deaths?

 

B.B.King, John Nash, Christopher Lee and other people who were very good at what they did, and many people consider them to be famous, but aren't REALLY famous because 90% of today's uneducated society has never heard of them.

More people are likely to have heard of Lee, as he did feature prominently in the Star Wars and LOTR franchises

Dusty Rhodes and charles kennedy too. Though i guess charles kennedy would only be a big death in the UK. That's one hell of a list and the summer has only just started ;) .

Tariq Aziz and Ruth Rendell too within the last month.

 

Of course, every year seems to have a large cull of big names as we get older.

 

eg

 

2014 - Eusebio, Sharon, Schell, Aragones, Seeger, Hoffman, Temple, Rooney, Ramis, Benn, Marquez, Townsend, Hoskins, Giger, Mayall, Kasem, Wallach, Garner, Di Stefano, Williams, Bacall, Attenborough, Rivers, Kiel, Paisley, Whitlam, Bruce, Cocker, Rainer

 

2013 - Winner, Chavez, Achebe, Griffiths, Ebert, Thatcher, Andreotti, Harryhausen, Gandolfini, Banks, Matheson, Mel Smith, Heaney, Frost, Norton, Clancy, Metsu, Reed, Lessing, Mandela, O'Toole, Fontaine, Biggs

 

2012 - Etta James, Gazzara, Houston, Davy Jones, Sendak, Summer, Gibb, Megrahi, Ephron, Shamir, Bradbury, Borgnine, Lord, Ride, Binchy, Vidal, Diller, Armstrong, Hal David, Michael Clarke Duncan, Lom, Andy Williams, Hagman, Brubeck, Shankar, Patrick Moore, Klugman, Gerry Anderson.

 

2009 (a former posters "Summer of Death"), for perspective: McGoohan, Montalban, Updike, Silver, Richardson, Ballard, DeLuise, Eddings, Carradine, Fawcett, Jackson, Malden, Cronkite, McCourt, Robson, Aquino, John Hughes, Les Paul, Ted Kennedy, Swayze, Todd, Brittany Murphy

 

(Just counting folk one would assume were world famous and not big names in their own country like Lloyd-Pack, Fred Phelps and Clive Dunn and so on, too...)

 

The more things change...

I remember the summer 2009 on here fawcett and jackson dying on the same day neither one of them were on the deathlist still the site was jammed. I kept on getting exceeding bandwidth limit and every 5 mins managing to read the site , I think that was the most people that had ever been on this site at that time. I know when thatcher died it overtook it.

 

I wonder if zsa zsa and fidel died on the same day would they set a new record of people online.

I guess many people must've heard about Nash as well, as he was the protagonist of a blockbuster (The Beautiful Mind, grossing over $300M worldwide).

Okay, okay, I get it. I was exaggerating. Either way, I'm still pretty sure many people forgot who Nash was and needed to be reminded that he was that schizo from the movie who was pretty good at math, and I also reckon that many young people have never heard of B.B. But whatever.
