As if we haven't had enough grief of late you have to go resurrecting deaths from the past...

Mind you Lord Lucan is back in the news!

I read an article about Lord Lucan. People claiming one thing, others denying it due to his dislike for "foreign muck". If you're on the run for allegedly murdering someone, I think the local food and culture are going to be the last things on your mind.

Talking of Keith Moon, who, quite correctly, died young unlike the other hypocritical members of the Who.. I always think ACDC look like a band entirely made up of the love children of Keith Moon.

No member of AC/DC is over 5'4". Angus is under 5', which is why his Gibson SG looks so huge on him. They're a little hobbit band.

And just so I'm not accused of going off-topic, Bon Scott, 33, aspiration of vomit. In 1980.

Thank you, Roy. You've just made my Angus a very happy young man. This very afternoon he was bemoaning his lack of height. At 5'7" he is the second shortest adult in my family (only his sister is shorter) and the same height as me. Two of his brothers are over 6'.

Just now, I told him that you said that Angus from AC/DC is under 5' tall, and he said "What, Angus Young?" and looked most surprised. And happy. :fsm_rock:

Hell's bells, has it been 32 years since Scott died?

The Eurovision Song Contest was struck by lightning, and was sent back to 1955. We had a bet at the office to see if it would be there or not.

I haven't checked this but apparently Englebert is older than about 20 countries competing in Eurovision :haha:

Yes but he didn't reckon on Russia submitting an entry from the survivors of the Pugachev's Rebellion of 1774:
