Same rules as last year. Pick your three plus one tragedy pick
Killing your own picks is cheating.

Here's mine :

Donald Trump - Hopeful pick but the US is due a presidential assassination.

Bruce Forsythe - He can't last much longer

Kieth Richards - Must be getting close to the top of Deaths list.

Tragedy Pick - Jeremy Clarkson in a terrible accident involving a hamster up his chute.

    2. Ken Dodd
    3. John Challis
    Tragedy pick - David Jason

    A tragedy would be a genuine loss to the world.
    Meat Loaf would not be a tragedy. The world would be free from his awful music.

    You're joking, right? They don't delete his back catalogue on death. In fact, on the evidence of Prince, Bowie and George Michael, on his passing they will play almost nothing else constantly.

    If I change now one of them will go so by sticking to my choices I'm keeping them alive.

    Well, if I stick to it I'll get one right eventually. Although Keef wold be more of a tragedy than Debbie Harry, she's not what she used to be and it would be best to remember her in her prime.
    I'll go for the ones that let me down so badly last year:

    1. Murray Walker
    2. Morgan Freeman (Internet rumours will come true one day)
    3. Keith Richards (How is he still alive?)

    Tragedy pick. Debbie Harry.

    Possibly not for a one hit censored like meat loaf.
    I can't see everyone going on to farcebook to suddenly claim they were life long fans.
    I can't remember the last time I heard meatloaf on the radio.
