The DeathList 2004

On today, gone tomorrow.

The DeathList 2004

So with the mighty 2003 now behind us DeathList 2004 is now up and running. Just a quick recap on the basics. The DeathList committee draws up DeathList at the end of each year with the objective selecting the most celebrities who will die in the next calendar year. The list comprises 50 celebrities with no more than 25 who appeared on the previous year's list. Some vigorous debate this year, but the new record of 14 deaths in 2003 is an ambitious target, which will be tough to beat. Thanks to all the people who made suggestions on the forum and to our in-house coding team. As usual comments by email are welcomed to comments@deathlist.net Now we sit and wait for them to drop...
