Bit off topic but I saw him on celeb Mastermind the other day and realised I'd never actually seen him before.
He started talking and I was like "...I recognise that voice"

I used to watch this on Channel 5, there were some interesting episodes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it's available to stream anywhere (without renting).
Yeh watched most of the ones of channel 5. The ones with Richard Shepherd were very good. Bit of morbid curiosity on my part. Famous people and how they died: Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Micheal Hutchence, Elvis, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Whitney Houston, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Winehouse. Those are just off the top of my head.

The way peeps die shows how they lived, which is what I find interesting. A lot of the above were drug related and mixed their drugs - Ledger (unintentionally) and Hoffman being prime examples.

Watched the Bruce Lee one on YouTube before they took it down for Copyright reasons. But this podcast is just the narration without the video. I always thought his death was exploited by his family. Brandon went to his grave thinking his father died from an allergic reaction to a headache tablet.

The Dragon film also takes artistic licence with Bruce Lee’s life and the last line of the film “people always wonder about the way he died, but I prefer to remember the way he lived.” always stuck in my mind as a big Hollywood Kop out.

The film blamed his back injury on a fight, instead of being caused by doing a “morning glory” after not warming up properly - because well it was more entertaining to tell it that way.

I think him taking and abusing Cortisone is the most likely explanation I have seen so far of his early death as it was unlikely he could have come back to resume his martial arts acting career without taking something to recover from such a serious back injury.

I remember seeing the Phillip Seymour Hoffman one and thinking that they were running a bit short of subjects - drug addict dies of overdose wasn't exactly much of a conundrum to unravel!

Hopefully Bruce Lee injured his back doing good mornings (my back hurts just thinking about doing them). I don't recall ever warming up when I've had the chance to make use of morning glory! ;)
