Robin Gibb asked to be buried with his brother Maurice - the gravedigger
said "I don't know mate, how deep is your bruv?"

Thought I heard the ghost of Robin Gibb in my herb garden, but when I went
to check it was just the chive talking.

It's all a matter of opinion. :(

Is it too soon?

The rest of us are just Stay'n Alive but I could easily succumb to Saturday Night Fever tomorrow night.

FWIW, Joan Rivers recently got slammed for her Whitney Houston joke in her new book:
"I hate Houston ... it's crawling with bugs. Oh, wait, that's Whitney Houston; I'm sorry, my bad."

Tasteless maybe, but much to my wife's dismay I'm always making jokes about dead celebs nearly the minute I hear about 'em.

For instance, when Donna Summer's death was unveiled I started singing Cold Stuff, that went over like a brick. Then of course I had to make cracks about how I guess that was her Last Dance and I sang a chorus of how I heard she died On The Radio and now I'll bet Heaven Knows, and she'll probably want to be buried in MacArthur Park so on and so forth.

Yes, I know it's not pretty, it's a sickness for sure. ;)

I though the Bee Gees were far better in their early days before they went all disco and high pitched. (New York Mining Disaster era).

I was never quite sure if it was Robin or Barry who was singing the screechy high notes, I think they had slightly different warbles. The high pitch sound to me was always difficult to understand, take for instance the song "Tragedy" for years I thought they were singing about diarrhoea I thought the line went "Tragedy, when you loose control of your own *****ole".

There have been some great dead celeb jokes; Elvis and Michael Jackson being the richest vein. My favourite MJ joke was the one about how MJ was a West Ham fan (West Ham are a British football team - the fans favourite song sung on the terraces every week is "I'm forever blowing bubbles")

When John Lennon was shot, my immediate reaction was Oh. I guess that means the Beatles won't be getting back together again.

She said, dating herself.

Awright, how precisely can I date myself? There was a time when, if people spoke of Kennedy being shot, I thought first of Bobby, because that's the one that stood out most vividly. Can't even talk about the day the music died; when the song of that name came out, I had no idea what it referred to. Or even that it referred to anything in real life.

But I will always remember where I was when Harvey Milk was shot.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
