Some corrections & (hopefully) some additions
Jackson Pollack - should be Pollock
Maria Calas - should be Callas
Bernadette Peters February 28 1958 - should be February 28 1948
Fats Domino has two dates - the correct one is February 26 1928. Also, as he died recently, could he be added to They Died in 2016 - 2020
Fats Domino -- Musician -- 1928 - 2017. Pianist, singer/songwriter and pioneer of rock & roll.
Operatic Duets :
La Trovatore - should be Il Trovatore (capital i )
Australian No 1 Hits :
Black Betty performed Spiderbait - should be Spiderbait -- Black Betty
Polkolbin cheese comes from Australia - There is a regional area in the N.S.W. Hunter Valley called Pokolbin (not Po-l-kobin) where there is a dairy and a cheese factory but no record of a 'Pokolbin' or Polkolbin' cheese. There is definately no variety of that name.
Strange Place Names :
There is no 'Chinaman's Knob' in W.A. but there is a hill in Victoria & a mountain in N.S.W which both have that name.
I know there is already a lot in this category but might there be room for just a few more please?

Doodlakine -- Western Australia, Australia

Useless Loop -- Western Australia, Australia
Sorry about the "oo" overload. It's quite common in place names of Aboriginal origin. There's loads more strange & amusing ones - far too many to include so I just picked a few I've been to.
I've put all the additions in alphabetical order as a matter of course but was just wondering if the site uses software that does this automatically.
This came up in today's Entertainment brainoff. Animated Villains : Foxey Loxley - should be Foxy Loxy (in both 1943 & 2005 films).
