    Famous People Death Thread

    figured its happening often enough to keep something permanent.

    I wouldn't say I'm a fan of George Michael but geez louise his performance at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert was phenomenal.


    2016 is taking no prisoners.

    here it is if you've never seen it.

    also, if you re not quite sure how good this is feel free to go watch other singers try and do Freddie songs.

    it aint easy.

    Holy shit! Wow....I love that song and I was skeptical...but wow.

    I actually got to see Brian May play Bohemian Rhapsody live in the anniversary show of We Will Rock You back in 2009. That was something special. Came out the trap door with Ben Elton.

    Thank you for sharing that, Plague.

    The first album was pretty good but after that they released the follow up Freedom which was muzak / dross.
    Great singer though and could craft very catchy melodies as well. Unfortunately, the party took precedence over the art and he peaked far too early.

    Some of the best New wave hooks of the early 80's.

    Agreed - the Freddie tribute performance is absolutely his very best live.

    Just put this old Countdown performance up to remember the brilliant Rick Parfitt, of Status Quo who passed away on Christmas Eve...



    This time last year we lost Lemmy, Stevie Wright, then Bowie in swift succession. Has me thinking who will be the third this time around!

    Good riddance 2016.

    60 is very young but it's about par for the course if you do a shitload of drugs and drink like a fish.
    In Fishers case she did trips from the age of 13 and apparently never stopped. Lucky to have made it to 40 to be honest.

    this question came up yesterday and I haven't had enough time to fully think it through but while we are waiting for the next famous person to go ponder this:
    If you could bring anyone back from the dead who would it be?
    The only caveat is it must be someone you don't personally know.

    Go.
