Subject: RE: OBIT: Kytrad Still Here?

You should perhaps follow Dave Swarbrick's example. While he was in hospital having major surgery about 2 years ago, the Sunday Telegraph, a UK national paper published his obituary. This gave him something of a shock, as you would expect.

His story is that, when he recovered, he went to see a solicitor to ask whether he could sue the Telegraph. The solicitor looked at the obit. and told him he should be paying them.

Ever since, on tour, he carries photocopies of his obit. and sells them for 50p each.
