Same deal as before, although I hope a little bit easier this time. Twenty pictures of moderately well-known (to me at any rate) people. Who are they? I'm going to lock the thread until Friday so everyone who wants to can have a go - PLEASE PM ME WITH ANY ANSWERS. Then I'll open it up and give clues about any not got. Six Brits, 11 or 12 Americans, one Belgian, four multiple murderers, two writers, one person I've met, two with the same surname, three visual artists and one Beatles, one VU, one Springsteen and one Clash connection.
