Musical Monday Special Edition ~ Remembering Cass Elliot

Cass Elliot
September 19, 1941 – July 29, 1974

One of the first singing groups that I remember when I was a child was The Mamas and The Papas. Four very talented performers made up this vocal group, Michelle and John Phillips, Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty.

I can still remember singing along with the car radio to Monday, Monday and California Dreamin’.

When the band broke up in 1968, I was glad to see that Cass Elliot had decided to begin a solo career, as she was my favorite singer from that group.

It was a neighborhood friend who informed me of her death, at the age of 32. It was first reported that Elliot had died from chocking on a ham sandwich. Her cause of death was later confirmed as a heart attack.

In 1998, The Mamas and The Papas were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Elliot’s daughter, Owen, accepted this posthumously award for her mother.
