1 out of 5 - you're a tough act to please!

Well, I suppose we can't rule out Glasgow Rangers, even at the moment, so ...

4. Ranger - John Greig
9. Football World Cup Top Scorer - Gerd Muller
10. World Snooker Champion - have we had Steve Davis yet?

If I had any idea whatever about the connection, I'd give some better guesses!

1 Greek Island RHODES
2 Moonwalker YOUNG
3 Actress susan GEORGE
4 Ranger CLAYTON Moore
5 Bitch COLLINS
6 Dumb Blonde MARILYN Monroe
7 Wicker Man WOODWARD
8 Metallic element MERCURY
9 Football World Cup top scorer ROSSI
10 World Snooker Champion TAYLOR

Nick Rhodes, Paul Young, Boy George, Adam Clayton, Phil Collins, Marilyn, Keren Woodward, Francis Rossi and Roger Taylor all performed on Band Aid (and I guess at Live Aid too) but Freddie Mercury did not perform on Band Aid and so is o-o-o? I half hope I'm wrong 'coz I haven't thought up a new one yet!

Thanks Dysart for your kind comments - the question was superb - I just made a lucky connection ...

1 20th Century dictator
2 British comic film actor
3 Alumnus of West Point
4 British-born football manager
5 German composer, long since decomposed (apologies to W S Gilbert!)
6 Title of a VIP
7 Poet and explorer
8 Two British PMs
9 Nickname of an American golfer
10 Tragic Shakespearian figure

This one is either very easy or very obscure ... we shall see whichever anon. As ever there is a connection and an o-o-o. ;)
