Sir Creep

José José

The person who made the edit has never edited Wikipedia before, plus there's no change on the Spanish-language version. I'm gonna give this a thumbs down.

The good folk of the forum were right to be sceptical on this one - Jose Jose's wiki page has been amended to remove the reference to his death.  Jose Jose is undead, long live Jose Jose (well, for anyone who doesn't have him in any of their lists).

That was a long and unclear story with him. It was hard to get clear facts. And then at some point, I stopped caring.

I need to give a proper sendoff to José Jose.

I’ve now had at least three Sir Creep names that I have championed and/or discovered die in about 5 months.  Jose Jose was first mentioned about three years ago for Team Gris Gris.  I chose him as my (then) youngest team member because he had abdominal issues and had been a roaring drunk for years prior.  Surmised it might catch up with him.  And a few short years later, at only 71, it has.

RIP to MY Jose Jose.

I see no one started a ‘Biggest Misses by the Committee, 2019’ thread.

 

Jose Jose would be at the absolute TOP of the list.  Just goes to show how narrow DL is.  Dude was only the biggest selling pop artist in the history of Mexico....with probable stage 4 pancreatic C (as of Jan 1 when the 2019 list posted).  How you leave Jose Jose off of DL I don’t fucking know.  For Tina Turner I guess :rolleyes:

This biggest misses by the committee thing again?

I'm not certain how many times it's been re-iterated that DL started in the UK and it is still a UK committee (afaik, I'm not privy to such information) but it's more than a few.

Why do these folk who are not famous at all in the UK keep getting tagged as (enter hyperbole of choice) misses?

 

Rant done.

Latin American doesn't really permeate UK music that often. The better US/Mexico analogy here is the UK/France, and look how often French folk wind up on the DL...

Technically speaking, he didn't make the list.

 

 

Hence setting Creepy off with:

And a good job too. P

 

But no, I'd never heard of him either until he cropped up hereabouts.
