Canned Heat

Bob Hite AKA The Bear was the co-lead vocalist of the group. On April 5, 1981, during a break between sets  at a show, a fan handed him a vial of heroin. He snorted it and fell into a coma, after which others unsuccessfully attempted to revive him with a large dose of cocaine. A group of roadies put Hite in a van and drove him to bandmate Fito de la Parra's home, where he died.
