It was to illustrate an idle musing rather than statement of fact?

Meanwhile, there are all kinds of ppl showing up with arguments about how, statistically, we should expect last year's celebrity body count to be more typical, since people get famous for more than just movies these days.

Anyone notice that so far this year the closest we've had to a celebrity death was that murderous orca bastard at Sea World who drowned his trainer a couple of years back? Last year, by this time, I think we'd lost Lemmy, Bowie, AND Rickman already...

A'ight, here's my 2017 list.

1. Ozzy--his liver can't hold out forever
2. Keith Richards
3. William Shatner--He's like 10 years older than Takei and should absolutely NOT be the last original Star Trek officer standing.
4. Steven Tyler
5. John Mellencamp
6. Jack Russell of Great White...just a hunch.
7. Jimmy Page (rabid wolverines high on CRACK, Page...see my 2016 dead pool posts for full details)
8. Lou Gramm
9. Geoff Tate (Queensryche)
10. Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran

And if Alice Cooper does have to die this year, I hope it's awesome. He's a golf addict (self-confessed--used golf and sugar-free Red Vines to take the place of booze), so struck by lightning IS a viable possibility.

Gravdigr, I wouldn't be so sure about Willie Nelson . I've seen footage of his martial arts workouts upside his tour bus and he's in amazing shape! I love that someone finally asked him openly to opine on the dangers of marijuana use and his answer was along the lines of "It is absolutely dangerous! A friend of mine dropped a bale and it broke his foot in like 5 places. Gotta be careful with that stuff."

Is it too late to edit my list?

I have a different pick that I feel good about. No new information. Just a feeling based on something someone said, and I realize is correct.

Someone young and famous and in perfect health is going to die this year. But they aren't on my list from a couple days ago. I'd even be willing to take somebody old off my list. Like QE2, if I can put this person on it.

Fuck it. I'll name him.

David Blaine.

Dead man walking. Dude is catching a bullet in his mouth every night in his Vegas show. Even if he's good, he only has to make one mistake one night. 99.9% success makes him dead. That 0.1% failure is all it takes.

Spoiler:


He's not really catching a bullet. It's magic. And by 'magic', I mean fake.
