I heard this on the radio this morning and it is very weird. Singer Paul Davis (had a few hits in the 70's - I Go Crazy) died Monday (4/21 on his birthday) of heart problems. He was from a small town named Meridian (sp.)...I believe they said in Mississippi. The only other famous person from Meridian was another singer, Al Wilson (had a #1 hit in the 70's - Show and Tell). He too died on Monday, 4/21.

To add more causes of death.
Charlton Heston's cause of death was apparently pneumonia
Irvine Robbins died of natural causes
Eddy Arnold's cause of death seems to be complications from hip injury, but some sources also say illness, so would probably be better to just say natural causes

Earle Hagen. He's the guy who composed the Andy Griffith theme song (and also I, Spy and the Mod Squad).
