Celebrity Deathwatch

Post by steveqpr881 »

A feature in which we say goodbye to famous people who have absolutely no connection to QPR.
R.I.P. Gary Brooker, lead singer of Procul Harem - Whiter Shade of Pale was their biggest hit.

Who can forget that scene when she was in bed with a jar of pickled onions :D

She was born in South Africa. ‘Olive’ was married to ‘Arthur’ and in real life to Terry Duggan who appeared in one of the film versions as ‘Nobby’.

Anna had an interesting start to her film career when she appeared in ‘Nudist Memories’ in 1959!

Steve, did you get all that from her obituary in yesterday's Daily Telegraph? ;)
Must admit, I was surprised she made it in - so quickly, and No. 1 obit as well.


& R.I.P. another actress, Sally Kellerman who played "Hotlips" Hoolihan, in M*A*S*H*.

Bernard, speaking of Jamaican music, I just saw (on ShepherdsBushW12.com)
that a reggae shop in Askew Road has had a blue plaque put up, to reflect it's influence
on London's music scene. Your neck of the woods, I believe?
