In reply to: . 's message, "UPI story must be in error. It gives Whaley's age as 40 in 1993, which means he would've only been 15 when "Summertime Blues" was a hit in 1968" on Monday, January 28, 05:29:14pm


LOS ANGELES -- Paul Whaley, drummer of the San Francisco-based psychedelic band Blue Cheer, has died of an apparent heart attack, a family friend said Wednesday.

He was 40.

Whaley, whose real name was Howard Walls, was found dead Sunday in his Los Angeles home.

Peter Palmiere said Whaley was found about 2 p.m. by his girlfriend who called paramedics. He was pronounced dead a short time later at Brotman Medical Center.

Whaley was a founding member in 1968 of Blue Cheer, best known for its recording that year of 'Summertime Blues,' which hit No. 14 on the Billboard charts.

Palmiere said services were planned for Saturday at Inglewood Park Cemetery.

UPI editors would have been more than aware of Whaley's age in 1968, which the article correctly stated in connection with "Summertime Blues" (NT)Besides, Steve Winwood, Alex Chilton, and Greg Munford were also actively recording around that same age.Monday, January 28, 07:19:34pm
    His death date has yet to be added to Wikipedia. Despite the facebook reports. (NT)As to the 1993 obits. Their claim is that he died under the name Howard E. Walls (7-15-1951-7-4-1993). doesn't match up with birth date of 1-14-1947.Tuesday, January 29, 01:08:27pm
