Calendar* Clarification: Chuck Willis

Some websites mistakenly say Chuck Willis ("C.C. Rider") died in a car accident.  Other sites claim he died in Chicago, Illinois.  According to the books  Rhythm and Blues, Rap, and Hip-hop by Frank Hoffmann and The Last Sultan:  The Life and Times of Ahmet Ertegun by Robert Greenfield, Willis died of peridontitis during surgery in Atlanta, Georgia.  The book Hanging the Peachtree Bandit:  The True Tale of Atlanta's Infamous Frank DuPre by Tom Hughes also confirms that Willis died in Atlanta.
