The DeathList 1987

On today, gone tomorrow.

The DeathList 1987

The 1987 list was the inaugural Deathlist. The original idea was conceived in a bar at the Mandela Bar (as it then was) at Warwick University in December 1986 following the news of Cary Grant's demise. A large team of Deathlist novices came up with a list of 31 celebrities. The list produced just one success, however over the years the art of deathlist selection has been transformed into a science.
