I also remember Kirk Douglas dying. Weird.
Another one from just today, I thought Rowdy Roddy Piper was gone but he is still alive as well.
I think a lot of these are just mistaken identity, I always get Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston and Burt Lancaster mixed up...the latter two are dead, Heston recently in 2008.
I was certain that Ron Jeremy died last year. Today I saw that he is alive and well.edit on 21-1-2014 by Donkey_Dean because: (no reason given)
Interesting conversation in the Pub the other night and because I am a DJ we got onto the subject of music and one person asked me to pull the biographical data up on Roger Whittaker because they wanted to know for whatever reason when he had exactly died.
When I explained that he was still alive many around the table and as you can imagine they were the older customers all in unison exclaimed that he had died a long time ago due to various medical complications etc.
They were of course amazed when I showed them what the Wikipedia link had to say. That said I am aware that Wikipedia is not the be all and end all for 100% accuracy.
OK- this is a repeat thread and the Billy Graham death issue and that has been solved. He was very ill, maybe heart attack about 10 years ago, and it was reported on AP that he was critically ill. Some papers took that to the next step and mistakenly reported he died when he hadn't. He actually recovered, but after that he retired and handed over his work to his son. Think that is the source of this confusion. I read this explanation on ATS before.
Didn't Casey Kasem host the New Years Eve ball drop event a few years back and his voice was off? I thought I remembered hearing something about throat cancer. I can't seem to find any online reference to his hosting this event? Anyone?
