Well, he's lead singer on two albums I own. He was lead singer on 3 chartings songs. When he dies it will be reported, and he was known for something before he got old/sick. He qualifies by the rules stated. And your "I worked in the music biz for 8 years" comment is just ridiculous. I've worked in publishing for almost 15 years and there's a good chance I might not know an author who hit the best seller list 3 times in the mid-80s. Just because you wouldn't make the same pick sheep doesn't make it a bad pick. Hell if you don't like the pick, be happy I wasted my pick so you could get the person you wanted. Otherwise, really... piss off and get on with your life and the draft. I stepped away from RJ for a while in part because there was a bit too much self-important jackassery about and it made it less socially pleasing. I decided to come back and pick up some of the social parts of this community I enjoyed and which became a valued release for me over the years. It's a goofy waste of time draft with no $ at stake and no real purpose. Is there any real reason for being a jerk about it?

LMAO - stressed much?

I just stated the majority opinion. Whatever. It's not like it's the first time you've been challenged on your marginal Ronnie Briggs-style picks.

I just stated the majority opinion.

Your concept of "famous" is obviously at odds with everyone else's. Whatever. If you don't like people commenting on it, maybe you should make some kind of attempt to check your rebel Gothitude at the door and play by the same rules everyone else is.

Yes, as a rule I DO stress much.

it's the people at the draft/auction every year who go $4 on a guy to crickets in the room that move to the front of the pack because they took a shot on an unknown high-upside player that others were disregarding. People laughed at my $2 Uribe last year. I walked away with another title.

Sorry my definitions in life don't meet your approval Sheep, but I'm really fine with that. And as was stated, my pick(s) fit the rules of the game. I am playing by the same rules. It's not like Toto, or LeRoux are unheard of bands. They charted on Billboard with Fergie singing. Just because he doesn't have the last name of Hagar, or Collins, or Rose, or BonJovi doesn't mean he didn't play a role in music that earned him some mainstream fame. It's not like he's a bassist for Suzy Smith's Barbreaker Band or something. And you hype on Biggs... I'll argue he's a more important/famous commodity in the annals of crime history than all of the "famous" terrorists from the middle east that were starting to get pulled out of the interwebs. Nobody would have an issue if someone pulled the leader of the Gambino family even though nobody out of the East Coast would have much of a concern with him. Biggs orchestrated one of the most impressive crimes in modern times. And still being alive he was honored (and fankly this cracks me up) at a banquet this year for his lifetime of work in the crime industry.

And my "rebel gothdom"? WTH? lol I showed no rebellion. I dont' attempt to buck any systems around here. I mentioned being the resident goth in my initial post because frankly people have always found it funny that a goth is on a fantasy baseball board. I was all fun and games and attitude-free in a silly little game until the sheep started bleating.

And I think there was a comment on not pulling names off a list... wow... it's a draft. Do you not spend 1/2 of your winter/spring going over draft prep lists? lol Nobody is going to just sit back and just randomly pull famous names out of a hat. Jeff Probst or Brad Pitt, they're famous... no reason to think they might die so they're not quality picks. Mary Travers a few years back... she's not Pitt famous, but hell, he might die. That's the name of the game sheep. :)

I thought about Lohan, but she might be passed the death line and quickly fallen into the "pickled" category that has kept people like Keith Richards and Iggy Pop alive for decades.

Whoa! I had no idea this was even going on. Bizarre... and nice pick.

Linky: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/randy-quaid-wife-evi-hollywood-refugees-exclusive-interview/story?id=12020421

**********

Randy and Evi Quaid opened up today about their increasingly bizarre behavior, saying they fled to Canada to escape a Hollywood-focused mafia that has stalked them, bugged their phones and hacked into their computers.

"We are refugees … we are Hollywood refugees," Evi Quaid told "Good Morning America" in an exclusive interview. They are "seeking to be left alone by the criminals in America."

...

The couple have accused a mysterious Hollywood cult they call the "Star Whackers" of attempting to kill them for their money. They also attribute the deaths of celebrities such as Heath Ledger, David Carradine and Chris Penn to the "Star Whackers" and said the listed causes of death -- drug overdose for Ledger and accidental asphyxiation for Carradine -- were "flat out fraud."

Yep, with that name I actually thought it was a joke pick. Seriously, that's a real person?

Wow, never heard of Nick Bockwinkel, who was AWA champ for like 10 years in the 70s and 80s, but you know the backup singer for Toto? :biggrin:

I'm looking to build a band for the afterlife. I've got a lead singer, a bassist, and a nice strong female voice for that surprising duet. Now checking out drummers and guitarists.

Definitely rooting for this. But if he dies of natural causes or is killed by one of his own instead, that might be difficult to verify, which is why I avoid him in these things.

He wasn't DQd when I took him several years ago. There was just whining about his lack of "celebrity". His connection to the Pistols and masterminding one of the greatest criminal heists in the UK's history seemed convincing enough to me.
