So I've been planning on making this thread for quite awhile now, since 2012 as I recall, but as always, I procrastinated. Anywho, no, this is not a copy of Name That Song, I was taught this game in "The Real World" and played it there.

So here's how it works, someone, me to start, thinks of a dead person who must be famous. To avoid as much spam as possible, gives off certain details about him/her from the start. After that, everyone will try to guess who said dead guy is whilst asking 'yes' or 'no' questions about him. It would be preffered, so as to avoid spam, that unless you have a rather unique question, or are guessing the identity of the dead guy, that you ask more than one question per post.

E.G.
Person 1: I'm thinking of a dead male, caucasion with black hair
Person 2: did he did within the last 5 years and was a singer?
Person 1: Yes to both.
Person 2: Micheal Jackson.
Person 1: Yes. Chose your dead guy.

I'm going to start off with a dead caucasion male, black hair, was known for being on television and without further questioning I will go into no more details on what area of television.

Ask and guess away.

Lol, alright that was funny.....

I am thinking of a dead musician. It wasn't his forte, but a hobby, but the music he played became a trivial record.

Is he dead?

Do you know his name?

Will you tell me his name?

Is this thread dying?

Did he live in the 20th century?

Was his main thing completely unrelated to his music?

Did he have any physical disabilities (blind, deaf, can't walk, etc)?

And why exactly do you call Sun Tzu, Sunzi?

No to all except the middle one.

Sun Zi is how we spell his name in Han Yu Pinyin, Sun Tzu is Romanticised, a la Westernised.

Did his main thing involve politics?

Sports?

Was he real? (seeing as you previously did a fictional character)

did he protest against something?
