Bob Dylan. My dad is obsessed, saw him lots in the early days. He, and I will be gutted when he dies.

Paul Wellor, same reason but for my partner

MeatLoaf. Love him, his music. I’ll be so sad when he dies..

Came in to say David Attenborough. I bumped into him in Tottenham court road in 1988/9 and knew by then he was a demigod.

I came on to say David Attenborough, but I see that there is a lot of love for him already.smile

Will also be really sad to see the likes of Judi Dench go when the time comes, but I hope that won't be for a while.

I was going to say no one, but yes, it will be a sad day when David Attenborough dies, the Queen too. I wouldn't say I'm dreading them though.

David Jason, mainly because my brother will be so upset

The Queen, because with so much change afoot in this country, if it happened in the middle of that I fear it would trigger some kind of collective breakdown.

Also Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Judi Dench- all our national treasures.

Agree with the Queen. It will be a sad day when she dies...

RethpoDad Thu 20-Feb-20 00:53:46

Bob Marley.

AScarecrow Thu 20-Feb-20 01:02:33

Yeah the queen for me.

And David A of course. He’s had a bloody good life though.

Dick van Dyke
David Jason

Paul McCartney dying will be an even bigger blow in our house than when Bowie died - and that was bad enough.

Madonna,she got me through some shit.Her songs and her attitude gave me strength.I will be in bits when she goes.

Maggie Smith and Judy Dench. Love them both. Also David Attenborough. I was so sad when John Thaw died and also Prince. 💔

I’m veering towards being a republican but I think it’ll be a sad day when the Queen dies. All that continuity and all the things she’s lived through. Whatever you think of the rest of the royals and the institution of monarchy she’s been an important symbol and a unifying force for decades.

The Queen, because with so much change afoot in this country, if it happened in the middle of that I fear it would trigger some kind of collective breakdown.

I’m as far away from being a royalist as you can reasonably imagine, but I actually agree with you on this.

David and the Queen. I always sit when they're on TV.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Thu 20-Feb-20 01:24:36

The Queen - very much so.
Dame Maggie Smith
Brian May
Billy Connolly

I think that's it for the ones who may reasonably be considered "in the running" but I'll be really upset if some of the younger ones go too, like Graham Norton, any more of the Young Ones (inc. French and Saunders) and any number of other comedians.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Thu 20-Feb-20 01:25:14

Dammit! Forgot David Attenborough (shoulda read the thread hmm)

BillHadersNewWife Thu 20-Feb-20 01:25:19

What a weird thread.

I don't think it's nice to discuss.

SpokeTooSoon Thu 20-Feb-20 01:27:52

Well it’s better than asking which famous people are you looking forward to dying.

SpokeTooSoon Thu 20-Feb-20 01:29:02

The Queen. I worry that, as a country. we will all feel very unsettled by it.
