Re: Death List 2018

Claudia Fontaine. You may not know the name but you'll know the face. All of us are of a certain age on here. And that means we probably saw her singing on TV more than anyone else. The Jam, The Specials, Pink Floyd, Madness, Neneh Cherry, Soul II Soul, Elvis Costello, Dusty Springfield, the list goes on....

She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey, but I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki...

Shocked to read this.
I saw Afrodiziak (backing vocals) on the Elvis Costello tour of Punch The Clock in 1983 at Bradford University.
Claudia Fontaine RIP

Did everyone else say the word "sixty" quite loud in their heads in the fashion of a darts announcer when they read this?

I mean, Eric was either to go at the age of "sixty" or he was going to live until he was "ONE HUNDRED AND EEEIIIGGGHHTTYY" years old.
