Where Alan Wilson of Canned Heat died Popular

701 Topanga Canyon Rd., , , 90290
On Sept. 3, 1970 at this, the home of fellow Canned Heat band mate Bob "The Bear" Hite, Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson overdosed on a hill behind the home. Some called it suicide, others an accident, regardless it was a terrible loss. The house has since been destroyed by a flood.

Al Wilson's final show with the Heat
Al Wilson's final show with Canned Heat took place on August 22, 1970 at the Inglewood Forum in California. The Heat was supporting Iron Butterfly.

I went to BlindOwlBio.com and sadly I did not find anything pertaining the the topic.

Is there another link anyone knows of?

Thank you.

I am still stunned that Alan was found only 50 ft from Bob's house...it was a known fact that Alan would sleep out at night as well... Yet...people at Bob's house that night didn't locate him .
