Famous people with Hep C

I am compiling a list of famous people with hep C so if you can think of anyone famous who has it or died with/from it please reply.
I am finding this useful when explaining who gets this virus to people out of the hep loop.
Thanks for your help,
So far I have...Davis Crosby, Pamela Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Naomi Judd, Evi Knevil, Larry Hagman, Mickey Mantle, Dusty Hill(from ZZtop), Freddy Fender, David Marks(beach boys), and Jamie Redford(robert redford's son.

Re: Famous people with Hep C

I believe the only person on that list who has died was Mickey Mantle-not too sure if it was due to hep C though.

Re: Famous people with Hep C

Sean: Yup he had it. I checked out some Mickey info. He died after a liver transplant in 1995 because he had liver cancer. He had hepatitis C and his use of alcohol was well known. After he got the transplant he started the Mickey Mantle foundation to raise awareness of organ donation.

Re: Famous people with Hep C

The Mick had hep C!!!

i'll be ...something. Thanks for the info.

By the way, if Pam Anderson is to be believed, we have to add tommy lee jones to the list, since she says she got it from using the tatoo needles he had used, no?

I was grateful to her for not mentioning me. Very discreet.

Re: Famous people with Hep C

OK I've decided what to do with my list. I have written to a local radio station to suggest they host their own liverpalooza. I figure even if they don't then the people who read it will at least be informed.
