Yes, of course, thank you, - how could I overlook them!

I've added him. The idea was, include any artist who reached age 80 and still performed on or after that day!

Some of the singers listed here were 80 or older when they died but had already stopped performing, so I think they don't quite fit...

True, do you know name(s)? So that I remove.

I don't know. You'd have to go through their wikipedia pages. But Francis Lai wasn't even a performer, he was a composer and I don't know if he composed anything after his 80th birthday but he sure didn't perform...

Marie Laforet turned 80 the last 5th of october, but died the 2nd of november.

You added all the entries from 32 to 52 only based on age so you should eliminate them unless someone proposes them or you have information that they still performed over 80.

Angela Maria was already mentioned on having been active still.

Thank you Deanna! The idea has merit!

Страничка найдена, добавлена. Только песенки этой не хватает на той страничке.

Was he active as a singer during his last year of life? I highly doubt it.

Ed,
I feel a personal obligation to note that Buba Kikabidze is 81 and he released a new album last year.

Да, он работал только до 2006 года, но разве он не заслужил места в этой коллекции?

SchnurrbratSchnurrbrat    Wed, 04/12/2019 - 03:17

It's Ed's decision.
Obviously there are thousands of respected artists who lived till their 80s and a number of centenarians as well. But imho the scope of this collection is different. And what do you mean by "работал"? I know he was still acting, but was he a performing or recording artist?

Последним появлением на экране стала роль Бога в фильме Эльдара Рязанова «Андерсен. Жизнь без любви» (2006).
