Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Ed, as he described in the interview I did with him, had health problems going back to the 1960's. He was an alcholic and he dabbled in other substances, but he recovered. At one point during the 1960's he suffered from a paralysis, which he also recovered from, but was unexplained.   Later in life he had a heart problems which resulted in a bypass operation.   He died of congestive heart failure.
