Lynwood Slim Dead At 60
He'd suffered a stroke last month, after which doctors said there was "little hope" of any recovery. He decided to discontinue his cancer treatment as a result.
Slim, real name Richard Dennis Duran, began playing trumpet in Los Angeles at the age of 12 before moving to Minnesota, and later Europe. He returned to LA at the end of the 1980s and launched his debut album Soul Feet in 1996. He drew acclaim for his most recent release, 2010's Brazilian Kicks. more on this story
