Keith Richards 100% proof

The internet is a strange place. I got a link to this most bizarre site today:

"The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. Proverbs 10:27
Average Age at Death of Included Rock Stars (1) 36.9 Years
Average Age at Death of Americans (2) 75.8 Years
(1) Computed from the included list.
NOTE: This is EVERY death of a Rock star we've found. This is NOT a "RIGGED" list to produce FALSE numbers, but an HONEST observation.
(2) From "The World Almanac and Book of Facts", 1997, p.973."

It then goes on to list a load of dead musicians, including Karen Carpenter, Frank Zappa and Florence Ballard (from the Supremes). Who were, by that rationale, wicked?

But there's a fatal flaw in these deathly musings: Keith Richards is still alive!

And if ever there was a rockstar who lived the lifestyle, he would probably be one of the first to pop into your head. :) John Lennon is listed, but Paul McCartney's alive. Kurt Cobain may have topped himself, but Dave Grohl's still going with the Foo Fighters. One of Hole may have kicked the bucket, but Courtney Love hasn't. I could go on, but the whole thing is ludicrous! :D

I can't work out whether the site is serious or not. It's got to be a joke surely?

What worries me, is there is lot more to it than this page: all of which is of the same calibre.
