Flashback: Cass Elliot Performs a Shimmery ‘Dream a Little Dream of Me’ in 1970

See Mamas and the Papas singer perform the song that helped launch her solo career

Forty-five years ago today, the world lost “Mama” Cass Elliot, member of the Mamas and the Papas and a pivotal figure in the 1960s California rock scene. She was found dead at the infamous 1 Curzon Place, a London apartment that Harry Nilsson had rented out to the star. (Four years later, Keith Moon would die in the same apartment, also at 32 years old.)

Contrary to a nasty urban legend, Elliot did not die from choking on a ham sandwich, which London celebrity doctor Anthony Greenburgh originally told the Daily Express. “She appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking Coca Cola while laying down,” he reported. “A very dangerous thing to do.” Later, Coroner Gavin Thurston would reveal that the sandwich was not the cause — as it had been untouched — and Elliot had actually died of a heart attack. However, nearly half a century later, the myth persists.
