cause_of_death: Internal bleeding (untreated) after an auto accident
best_know_for: Monticello area native J. B. Lenoir was a distinctive blues artist, in both his high-pitched singing style and the candid political critiques in many of his song lyrics and is best remembered for his 1955 hit “Mama, Talk to Your Daughter". He died on April 29, 1967, in Urbana, Illinois, at the age 38, of internal bleeding related to injuries he had suffered in a car crash three weeks earlier. The 2003 documentary film The Soul of a Man, directed by Wim Wenders as the second installment of Martin Scorsese's series The Blues, explored Lenoir's career, together with those of Skip James and Blind Willie Johnson. In 2011, Lenoir was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.

cause_of_death: Stomach ulcers and acute pancreatitis
best_know_for: Known as one of the Three Kings of Blues (along with Albert King and B.B. King) Freddie King was the stylistic heir to T-Bone Walker and B.B. King. He would have been remembered as a great Texas blues legend had not been the for the fact he moved Chicago. Between 1960 and 1964 he recorded over 100 sides that are now considered the definitive interpretations of blues standards including Hideaway and I'm Goin' Down. Ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as the 25th greatest guitar player, he was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
popular name: Charlie Parker
date_of_death: March 12, 1955
cause_of_death: Pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer, cirrhosis of the liver and a heart attack
best_know_for: Charlie Parker was a highly influential soloist and leading figure in the development of bebop jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique, and advanced harmonies. Parker was a blazingly fast virtuoso and introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas into jazz, including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. Often accompanied by the likes of Miles Davis, John Lewis, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Jordan, or Max Roach, Parker's wild excesses never seemed—at least until the very end of his life—to interfere with his music.
