Three Dog Night's Jimmy Greenspoon Dead At 67


. (Classic Rock) Three Dog Night keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon has died at the age of 67 following a battle with cancer. The band confirmed via their Facebook page that he died Wednesay (March 11) at his home.

Also known for his collaborations with Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, Jeff Beck and Linda Ronstadt, he announced last year that he'd been diagnosed with metastatic melanoma, and launched an appeal to raise funds for expenses surrounding his treatment.

Greenspoon said at the time: "I started having strange visions and sensations. My wife took me to the hospital where a CT Scan revealed a brain tumour.

"The tumour was removed on October 13 and diagnosed as a metastatic melanoma. Upon further examination, three spots were found on my right lung and one spot on my liver." Read more here.
