Cass Elliot
« on: July 29, 2011, 05:21:28 AM »

July 29, 1974: Mamas And The Papas singer Cass Elliot died in her sleep from a heart attack after playing a sold out show in London, England. She was staying at Harry Nilson's London flat when she died. Her only solo hit was 'Dream a Little Dream of Me,' which also featured the rest of The Mamas and The Papas. Had also been a member of The Mugwumps.

One of the greatest voices ever!

Cass Elliot said this in a 1968 Interview with Rolling Stone Magazine...

It’s true, I did get hit on the head by a pipe that fell down and my range was increased by three notes. They were tearing this club apart in the islands, revamping it, putting in a dance floor. Workmen dropped a thin metal plumbing pipe and it hit me on the head and knocked me to the ground. I had a concussion and went to the hospital. I had a bad headache for about two weeks and all of a sudden I was singing higher. It’s true. Honest to God.

How's it going "In My Life?" I LOVE THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS! I lived in California for 29 years and while partying on the beach, listening to "California Dreamin'" was a "must hear California anthem song!" I love that song! Other California anthem songs were "California Girls" by The Beach Boys and "Hotel California" by The Eagles just to name a few. Take care.

Fashion for ladies with bigger sizes was not hot in the late 60's I guess.
