Just hit on a great site dealing with popular music deaths.

Enjoy!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Very interesting site MPFC, I'm sure it will answer a few 'pub quiz' type questions that make their way round the workplaces.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

It'll probably answer a few of them....what ever happened to? questions as well.

I would just hate to die in a gardening accident.

And if they say the best die young then I better be watching my steps.

Indeed, a teacher at my old school died in his garden. There were two theories:

1: He had a heart attack.
2: He electrocuted himself while cutting the grass.

Although theory two is rather humerous, I think I believe the first....

Unless, of course, the heart attack was brought on by the electrocution.

Maybe it was a garden troll that frightened the teacher?

The teacher then suffered a massive heart attack and fell to
die in his\her garden?

The third theory which tyou overlooked was that he saw your picture in the paper and the memory of you sent him into eternal rapture..... ((quite surprised you didnt think of that one yourself Winnie)

Vittorio Brambilla, a racing driver (famous for crashing his car as he took his only Grand Prix win), survived many a crash, including a serious head injury in 1978, only to die, whilst trimming his hedges in the garden. Dangerous places these gardens.

I had a science teacher who died in the middle of a paper aeroplane competition. Now that's unusual one. Universially hated by all students he was.

None of this has anything to do with dead pop stars has it?! :ph34r:

Nope, but in the absence of a gardening and paper aeroplane fatality thread, this is as good a place to put it as any.

F**k's sake! Start one, then we could have cultural exchange visits because the posters on the pop star thread could drop in to the gardening one and discuss that much over-looked thrash outfit: Lawnmother Deth.

Hey! You're the one who posted the link to that site in the first place! All I did was point out that there was a 'farming' category inamongst categories such as 'inhalation of own vomit', 'heroin', and 'mysterious circumstances'. If I were a rock star, I know which category I wouldn't want to be in. No need to get snippy.
