Good luck, Phil. Jerry can wait for you a bit longer.

Oh, and so can all the keyboard players.

Best of, Phil.

If it all goes pear-shaped though, can I have that Alembic bass?

That is sad to hear so I hope all will be well.

"Let Phil sing" as they used to chant. He is probably the nicest guy in the history of rock and roll.

Paul Kantner has been very ill for ages. He was supposed to play with Jefferson Starship at a gig I attended in January 2014 but was too ill to appear. He had a suspected heart attack earlier this year but I can't find any updates.

Grace Slick has done well to make it thus far.

Wilko Johnson has recovered I believe

I used to think that it would have been better had Mark Chapman gunned down Ringo, because at least then there could have been the possibility of a Beatles reunion, with Pete Best roped in to play drums again. And then George died and my daydream with him.

Nice to hear - though not really a great deal of competition, I wouldn't have thought.

Any of you morbid lot running a book on who'll die next?

BuddhaPest - 20 Oct 2015 19:24:08 (#14 of 63)

Maybe someone could start an equivalent of the Dead Pool thread, but for musicians. You could get a bonus if one of your picks dies at the age of 27.

Mind you, musicians ain't dying young the way they used to.

As someone pointed out on the Dead Pool thread, Adele is 27. Just sayin', like.

Mick Lynch, singer of 80's quirk-out band, Stump, died shortly before Xmas, sadly.
