Canned Heat is a blues-rock/boogie rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1965. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson's 1928 "Canned Heat Blues", a song about an alcoholic who had desperately turned to drinking Sterno, generically called "canned heat". After appearances at Monterey and Woodstock, at the end of the 1960s the band acquired worldwide fame with a lineup consisting of Bob Hite, vocals, Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson, guitar, harmonica and vocals, Henry Vestine (or Harvey Mandel) on lead guitar, Larry Taylor on bass, and Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra on drums. Two of their songs - "Going Up the Country" and "On the Road Again" - became international hits; both were re-workings of obscure blues. At the time all their albums were released for worldwide distribution. The eccentric Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson, who had always suffered from depression, was said by some to have attempted suicide by driving his van off the road near Bob Hite's home in Topanga Canyon. On September 3, 1970, Wilson died at the age of 27, just weeks before the deaths of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. On April 5, 1981, having collapsed from a heroin overdose during a show at the Palomino in Los Angeles, Bob Hite was later found dead in de la Parra's Mar Vista home at the age of 38. The death of frontman Bob "The Bear" Hite was a devastating blow that most thought would end the career of Canned Heat; however Fito de la Parra kept the band alive and would lead it back into prosperity over the next few decades. This first incarnation of Canned Heat without Bob Hite was nicknamed the "Mouth Band" by Henry Vestine and was a huge hit in Australia, especially with the biker crowd. On October 20, 1997, a tired and cancer stricken Henry Vestine died in Paris, France following the final gig of a European tour. Canned Heat's popularity has endured in some European countries and Australia. In Belgium they have a particularly devoted following thanks in great part to Walter de Paduwa, aka Dr. Boogie, considered by the band as their "official historian". Other more recent deaths of band members included Bob Hite's brother, bassist Richard Hite, who died at the age of 50 on September 22nd, 2001 due to complications with cancer. Also former bassist Antonio De La Barreda died of a heart attack on February 19, 2009. From late 2008 to the Spring of 2010 did the lineup include Dale Spalding ,Barry Levenson, Greg Kage, and classic lineup hold-over and band leader Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra on drums. Harvey Mandel and Larry Taylor toured with Canned Heat during the summer of 2009 on the Heroes of Woodstock Tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. In 2010 Taylor and Mandel officially replaced Kage and Levenson. The current touring band thus consists of Dale Spalding, "Fito" de la Parra, Larry Taylor and Harvey Mandel.
