The 2021 departures board

Post by CJS »

A little early for the 2021 death thread perhaps, but there's not a lot of 2020 left to die in, especially if you live on the other side of the world, and it would be a shame to miss anyone.

Gentle reminder - for the recording and discussing of those well known public figures who pass away in 2021 (although again, at least half of those who died in 2020 were new ones on me!).

And of course, may the usual suspects continue to defy the odds and avoid Mr G Reaper for as long as possible.

Good luck everyone 👍🏼
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

I believe Gerry & the Pacemakers were the first group to achieve 3 No1 singles with their first 3 single releases too

Very sorry to hear this. Brands Hatch on a Sunday morning, 9.59 am, bacon roll in hand, then a crackle on the PA system followed by Brian’s dulcet tones ... and a racing engine fires up in the pits; happy memories.

Afghanistan - so what was the point of all that then?

The world tonight lost Marion Ramsey.

Perhaps most famous for playing the mild voiced Officer Hooks in the Police Academy series.

I loved those movies when I was growing up!
