On this day in 1974, Cass Elliot died in her sleep from a heart attack after playing a sold out show in London, England. Interesting side note: Elliot died in Flat 12, 9 Curzon Place, Shepherd Market, Mayfair, London, which was on loan from singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson. Four years later, The Who’s drummer Keith Moon died in the same flat at the same age.
