There was a picture of Dave Whelan (Chairman of Wigan Athletic b 1936) in my paper last night and I thought he was someone who is worthy of consideration. His apprarance reminded me a bit of Bob Paisley. Outside chance but probably not main list fodder.

I thought she died years ago, then I realised I was thinking about Molly Weir.

No reason to suspect imminent death but...

The Alexander Brothers (b. 1934 and 1935) have no tour dates listed online and are aging Scotsmen...two words which can be synonymous with life threatening.

And, we surely have to put Sam Bacile (widely named as the writer/producer behind the film that currently - ahem - slaying them in the middle-east), somewhere near the top of next year's picks.

Although, his exact identity, and age, remains a mystery.

I wonder exactly how many of the rioters have actually WATCHED the film. My guess would be about a handful.

Esther (b.1941) & Abi (b.1937) Ofarim. Israeli singers who had a UK No.1 hit in the late sixties with Cinderella Rockafella. Apparently after they divorced Abi did have issues with drug and alcohol addiction.

Those of you who are old enough to remember this will be cursing me for weeks for even mentioning it but a warning to the under 35s - under no circumstances allow your curiosity to get the better of you and look this up on YouTube. :old:

More on the mystery film-maker linked below.

Re Esther and Abi Ofarim; I can recommend her solo album In London a genuine curio that's been getting heavy airplay in my office recently.

When I was growing up there were only a small number of 7" singles in the house and they received extensive playing. There was this, Ob-li-de, Ob-li-da by the Marmalade, Twelfth of Never by Donny Osmond and Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell all of which have scarred me for life.

Speaking on intolerance and America I notice that Pat Boone (b.1934) is still alive. With the election on the horizon is he due to make some more wisdom filled observations on the current president?

From the Wikipedia page of Mr Pat Boone

Politics
Boone campaigned for Ronald Reagan to become Governor of California in 1966 and 1970, and actively supported Reagan's bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 1976. He was a vocal supporter of the Vietnam War. In 2006, Boone wrote an article for WorldNetDaily, in which he argued that Democrats and others who were against the president during the Iraq War could be questioned for their patriotism.[24] He was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on Fox News, where he expressed his outrage toward opponents of George W. Bush (in particular the Dixie Chicks). He said that their criticisms of the president showed they did not "respect their elders".[25]
In the 2007 Kentucky gubernatorial election, Boone campaigned for incumbent Republican Ernie Fletcher with a prerecorded automated telephone message stating that the Democratic Party candidate Steve Beshear would support "every homosexual cause." As part of the campaign, Boone asked, "Now do you want a governor who'd like Kentucky to be another San Francisco?"[26] More recently, he assisted the McCain 2008 presidential campaign by lending his voice to automated campaign phonecalls.
On December 6, 2008 Boone wrote an article for WorldNetDaily wherein he drew analogies between recent gay rights protests and recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. He reminded readers of hostage taking, exploding bombs, systematic murder and chaotic conditions of carnage. In it, he asserted that marriage is a biblically ordained institution, which the government has no part in defining. He then stated that equal rights for women and blacks were not "obtained by threats and violent demonstrations and civil disruption" but rather through due process. He concluded by warning that unless they're checked, the "hedonistic, irresponsible, blindly selfish goals and tactics of homegrown sexual jihadists will escalate into acts vile, violent and destructive".[27]
On August 29, 2009, Boone wrote an article comparing liberalism to cancer, likening it to "black filthy cells".[28]
In December 2009, Boone agreed to endorse the conservative U.S. congressional candidate John Wayne Tucker ® for his campaign in Missouri's 3rd Congressional District against incumbent Russ Carnahan (D) for the 2010 mid term elections.[29]
In 2009, Boone stated his belief that Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as the President of the United States.[30][31] Boone also has stated that Barack Obama is fluent in Arabic and read the Koran in Arabic as a boy.[30] He has also stated that President Obama "hasn’t celebrated any Christian holidays in the White House."[30]
Boone received a lifetime achievement award at the 38th annual Conservative Political Action Conference held in February 2011.[32]

I see, was aware he was pretty right-wing but didn't know he was so political with it. There seems to be a lot of right-leaning 'Pats' in the US of A
