The loss of a good number of immortals this year prompts me to underline how a new generation of them is emerging.

 

1)Syed Ahmed Ali Shah Geelani (1929): suffered from heart failure and recurrent pneumonia for the last bunch of years. Reported dead or on the brik of death many times.

2)Lee Teng-hui (1923): Has been in hospital for months. He survived a severe cerebral hemorrhage last year and has suffered from a large number of ailments.

3)Thich Nhat Hanh (1926): Reported to be dying almost two years ago, he is still being wheeled out each day. Stroke survivor and also manages recurrent pneumonia with ease.

4)Sumner Redstone (1923): Has been a vegetable for years and reportedly bedridden and incredibly frail. Still he persists.

5)Stanley Ho (1921): Every day thousands of money are spent by his family to keep him alive at Hong Kong Sanatorium. Cerebral hemorrhage survivor and has suffered from multiple organ failure, which he survived gleefully. Reported to be "on the brink of death" in January.

6)Balbir Singh, Sr. (1923): Well, you all know him. He survived just everything. Every time we see him bouncing back we think "Is this  fucking joke?", but it isn't.

7)Mikis Theodorakis (1925): A greek copycat of Dilip Kumar, fat, obese and suffering from heart failure. Always about to die, but never does.

8)Dilip Kumar (1922): Probably the last original immortal still alive.

9)Fauja Singh (1911): He is not the man he used to be. His health is slowly declining both physically and mentally wahtever his real age is. Does not look so invincible as he did.

10)Nobby Stiles (1942): Suffering from just everything for years and yet surviving a lot of teammamtes. Amazing.

11)Everton Weekes (1925): It has been in and out of hospital for him since that massive heart attack from June and could have spent months there. 

12)Gigi Simoni (1939): Has been in a coma for over a year, and no sign his condition is deteriorating.

13)Monica Vitti aka Joanne Woodward (1931/1930): Been in the late stages of dementia for damn years. Still seem undestructible.

14)Leslie Phillips (1924): More a cadaver than a person.

Lee Teng-hui has been removed as president of his "biotechnological society" as chances of recovery seem dim and he is still hospitalized.

Alexandre Despallieres, who is a murder suspect in the death of Australian millionaire and recording executive Peter Ikin, is apparently so ill...he might not make it to court:

Supposedly, he has Aids and multiple brain tumours... but he's also a bit of a shady person, so... decide for yourselves.

May be nothing, but Ian Holm is 88 and he couldn't make it to the LOTR online reunion via Zoom. He is either ill or can't work a computer, lol.

And from a 2017 FT interview with Mark Gatiss

 

Quote

Our afternoon tea stand is only half-finished — a miniature Victoria sponge untouched on top — but time is running out. Gatiss recognises someone at the door to the restaurant, a frail figure in a wheelchair, wearing a beanie. It’s Ian Holm, the 86-year-old actor who just three years ago was appearing as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit films. “He was brilliant,” says Gatiss, transfixed.

 

Frail and using a wheelchair for years.

 I just found out that Gorbachev's chief ideologist & nr.2 in the  politburo, Yegor Ligachyov (Ligachev), born in 1920, is still alive.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yegor_Ligachyov

 

He was the "brain" behind Gorbachev's failed anti-alcohol campaign & the one who recruited Boris Yeltsin as co-worker. He was also involved in Yeltsin's sacking in 1987. 

 

If he survives this year, he'll be one of the most famous centenarians alive.

Jesus. Eyes are quite sunken. He did have a brush with cancer a few years ago but was under the impression he got over it

Why are people obsessed with Les Dennis? :lol:

 

Seriously though, that documentary on Les Dawson is 4 years old now - clue was Roy Barraclough was in it and he's been dead 3 years. And he looked one of the healthy ones.

 

Michael Aspel looked thrawn and my pick for this year Stanley Appel was old then.

Without the Twitter account title giving away that it was Mark I would definitely think that was Richard Wilson 100%!:o

Yeah meant Les Dawson. 

It was the only bit I saw so wasn't paying too much attention at who was on it and what they looked like

some names that are worth keeping an eye on

 

- Federico Bahamontes (1928) : cyclist, "l'aigle de Tolède" 

- Just Fontaine (1933) : well known French footballer 

- Anne Vernon (1924) : actress best known for her role in Les Parapluies de Cherbourg

- Philippe Bouvard (1929) : reknown French journalist 

- Weinstein (1952) : definitely worth an inclusion on next year list giving his recent health scares 

- Edouard Balladur (1929) : French former PM 

- Albert II de Belgique (1935) : former king of Belgium

You know those names that just fit in your head with "tributes have been paid to x, who was found dead at their home earlier today"? In the past I've thought Lennie Bennett and Lesley Gore both fitted that mantle, and both met their maker in subsequent years. The latest name that I think fits that bill is Ben Vereen.

Also, @Sir Creep: any chance of Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak getting this Gris Gris callup in 2021?

She may be team captain already :P
