    Maybe I'm a little late here, but I read something somewhere earlier today that said he died last week. :confused: Pretty sad, right?

    Then I saw this:

    Elvin Jones is alive!

    Elvin Jones is not dead as announced erroneously at the SFJAZZ concert Friday, May 7; he's in a hospital in New York. This urban legend, spread by what most would assume is a reputable source, goes to show one how unreliable and fallacious the Internet is, or can be.

    terrible, the internet stinks :(

    I heard a while ago he was really sick, and that his wife had to help him walk to him kit at a show (and he was still amazing).

    I heard he died last week, but since it was the third report in a week, all claiming different days and reasons, I kinda assumed it was a lie.

    Thanks for the truth.
