My thoughts on reading where that you need 'classical' stars to synthesize heavier elements that are required for 'classical' life - it is only possible for us due to a generation of stars that came before us. Kinda cool that we're stardust, though. I don't think black holes would give this... but we're in danger of postulating that life can only exist if it is exactly like our own as we get more specified.
