Most people believe that Whitney’s problem with drugs and alcohol began when she married Bobby Brown. But let’s be honest here – Whitney started snorting cocaine at age 14. And while she tried her hand at rehab (including one stay 8 months before her death) it never really took hold.
On the Saturday of Whitney Houston’s death, Clive Davis was hosting his annual pre-Grammy celebration party and had flown Whitney in to perform and attend the Grammy’s as his guest. So after she died (and with the coroner’s van in the parking lot of the Beverly Hills Hilton), Clive didn’t miss a beat and continued to host his party. No … really.
Whitney has received numerous accolades throughout her career and posthumously, including 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, and 28 Guinness World Records, as well as induction into the Grammy, Rhythm and Blues Music, and Rock and Roll halls of fame.

popular name: Dick Dale
date_of_death: March 16, 2019
cause_of_death: Heart and kidney failure
best_know_for: Dick Dale was an American rock guitarist. He was the pioneer of surf music, drawing on Middle Eastern music scales and experimenting with reverb. Dale was known as "The King of the Surf Guitar", which was also the title of his second studio album. Dale was one of the most influential guitarists of all time and especially of the early 1960s. Most of the leading bands in surf music, such as The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean and The Trashmen, were influenced by Dale's music, and often included recordings of Dale's songs in their albums. His style and music influenced guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend, Eddie Van Halen and Brian May. He has been mentioned as one of the fathers of heavy metal. Many credit him with tremolo picking, a technique that is now widely used in many musical genres (such as extreme metal, folk etc.). His speedy single-note staccato picking technique was unmatched until guitarists like Eddie Van Halen entered the music scene.
