Of course he is, have you never heard of him before?

Only just at the mention of his name, but never really read up on what an evil bastard he truly is

As this appears to be a day for lists, thought I'd post what the The Hits programme I mentioned here decided were the top 20 rock deaths*. Thought this thread the most appropriate posting place**:

20. Michael Hutchins, INXS: suicide and/or accident via sex act
19. Shannon Hoon, Blind Melon: OD
18. Cozy Powell, Rainbow: car crash as a result of talking on his mobile whilst driving
17. Phil Lynott, Thin Lizzy: drugs
16. Ian Curtis, Joy Division: suicide via hanging himself
15. Steve Clark, Def Leopard: drank himself to death
14. Three of the Ramones, The Ramones: cancer, cancer, OD
13. Keith Moon, The Who: OD
12. John Bonham, Led Zepplin: choked on his own vomit
11. Layne Staley, Alice in Chains: OD
10. Jimi Hendrix: choked on his own vomit
9. Randy Rhoads, Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist: plane crash whilst playing a practical joke
8. Freddy Mercury, Queen: AIDS
7. Jim Morisson, The Doors: Heart Attack
6. Joe Strummer, The Clash: Heart Attack
5. Bon Scott, AC/DC: choked on his own vomit
4. Sid Vicious, Sex Pistols: OD
3. Cliff Burton, Metallica: Tour Bus Crash
2. Dimebag Darrel, Pantera/Damageplan: shot by nutter whilst performing on stage
1. Kurt Cobain, Nirvana: suicide via shooting himself

Of more relevance to this forum, the pundits on the programme were asked the following: Who's off to rock heaven next? The responses were (more-or-less) as follows:

Marylin Manson - because he's done everything now, so what's left?
Keith Richards - because come on!
Sinead O'Connor
Shane MacGowan
Pete Doherty x2 - because he's now 26 years old (referring to the 27 Club)
Cheeky Girls/Simon Cowell - please!
McFly - please! Somebody just sort them out...

When asked who will live the longest, the following responses were given:

Keith Richards x3 - because how is he still alive?
Axle Rose
Ozzy Osbourne - because he's survived pretty much everything, plus he's the Prince of Darkness
Slash
Lemmy

Of course, I don't think any of the above was based on rigorous, scientific investigation...


*I hope I got all the names and bands right. I don't really listen to rock music... ;)
**I'd like to point out that a gardening-related death was, in fact, mentioned on the programme. :P

I don't think any of them will die anytime soon. Keith Richards is the best bet and will probably live into his 70's. Pete Doherty just draws much speculation but will fail to die, Ozzy Osbourne like Richards will live and has survived even though it seemed he should have been dead long ago.

Watched the program and enjoyed it ie+, but since when did 'Joy Division' become 'rock'????!!! Did I miss something along the line in the past 30 years? Do they have a secret album of blinding guitar solos and drums that would blow your eardrums out?? I think not, I was shocked to see Ian Curtis in there, I guess it was the researchers and one of them was a fan, if they were that hard pushed to find a 'Rock Casualty' surely 'Razzle' from Hanoi Rocks would be a contender before Curtis, especially as he was killed by Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil, Vinnie was driving the car that crashed and killed Razzle.

Supposedly Lemmy's doctor has told him not to give up smoking, taking Speed and drinking Jack Daniels as his body wouldn't be able to handle it.

A world away from Lemmy, I've just read that Teddy Johnson is 86 today. Part of a duo with his wife Pearl Carr, they represented the UK in Eurovision one year and were beaten out of sight. Anyone have a clue what state of health he's in? So far as I know the pair of them are still alive. Meaning, like Jim Callaghan and his mrs, they may go together someday, netting a points bonanza for any dead pool smart enough to call that shot.

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