This year we have lost some big names :(

RIP Michael x


Did he not appear in that truly awful rendition for Jo Cox ?

Definitely possible. Saying that 53 isn't a bad age for these music types. 27 seems to be the age if you really hammer it

While i dont especially dispute your statement in the case of George Michael (I suspect lifestyle may have something to do with it) many people do suffer with heart problems for no reason whatsoever... Young fit people with no reason to suspect any heart conditions do occasionally drop dead. A couple of people who i went to school with died at young ages due to heart problems and one in particular was one of our schools 'athletes'.. A young fit kid who abstained from all the social temptations that sucked many of us in.. drink, smoking and the occasional line/pill and focused his life on sport and health, droped dead in about the year 2000 aged around 27. The other in fairness was a fat bird (nice lass though) who liked a bottle of vodka or two.

R.I.P to all of them... below 70 (at least) is no age to peg it.

RIP George Michael

Yes, quite a few fitness fanatics seem to die early. I suppose if you over do things regularly it has the same effect on the heart as being pilled up for 10 hours a day?
