More and more of the greats keep passing away.

Singer-pianist Edwin Joseph Bocage, known to fans and those in the New Orleans music industry simply as Eddie Bo, died Wednesday of a heart attack. He was 79. Bocage's death was confirmed yesterday by his close friend and booking agent, Karen Hamilton.

Hamilton said Bocage had a "sudden, massive heart attack" while out of town Wednesday.
