Two years ago, on April 20, 2006, the singer and songwriter Killer B died.
He was a country singer who had been in a coma for six months after contracting pneumonia in Los Angeles.
In the days following his death, his family members released a statement saying that Killer B was a singer in the Los Angeles-based group The Big Show.
He’d been hospitalized in Los Alamitos, Calif., for pneumonia for about a month, his brother, Robert B., told me.
Robert B. was a founding member of The Big Headz and a regular in the band’s touring lineup.
He said he met Killer B when he was working as a security guard at a casino in Los Angles in the late 1990s.
“He was like a real sweet kid,” Robert B said.
“I mean, I never saw him in a bad mood, but he was a really sweet kid.”
In his statement, the B-singer’s family said he’d been diagnosed with pneumonia two weeks before he died.
“After spending most of his adult life in a hospital, he was able to make his way to an apartment on the outskirts of L.A. and was treated by Dr. Joseph Hirsch, a renowned respiratory therapist who specializes in pneumonia,” the statement said.
“[Hirsch] prescribed a supportive oxygen tank and an IV of oxygen for Killer B to breathe on, to help the pneumonia get under control.
This helped him breathe normally.”
Killer B’s family members said he suffered from pneumonia and was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that causes the lungs to contract in ways that make breathing difficult.
He also had an undiagnosed heart condition, according to his brother Robert.
“It’s a real tough disease, and I’m going to miss him,” Robert said.
The family released a video of him singing, “P.S. I’m a singer, and it’s called the Big Show.”
The statement from Robert B was more specific: “I never saw Killer B in a negative mood.
When he was hospitalized, we went through a lot of pain, but it was also really good, and he was still smiling.
We were all very thankful for his care and the amazing people he was with.”
The family of Killer B did not respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.
The Bigheadz, who have since reunited, also released a new song with Killer B on April 19.
The singer, who was named the winner of a 2013 Best Country Song Grammy, was also inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
The band has released a second album, The Big Beat, in the past two years.
The members of The B-Singer’s Big Beat have said they are proud to have worked with Killer.
“The Big Show was a true icon and a true inspiration to all of us,” B-side track “Killer,” released on April 26, 2018, said in a statement.
“We are truly blessed to have had him in our lives for so long.
We’re proud to say that we’re the best band we’ve ever made together, and we’ll keep working until the day we’re gone.
We can’t wait to get back to playing and to get our music out to the world.”
The Big Shows, known as The Big Ones in honor of their manager, has been around for more than a decade.
B-Side track “Hole,” released in 2014, is a song from the band.
“Killa B,” released the following year, is the group’s eighth studio album.
“Big Beat” was recorded in Los Banos, California, in 2004.
Robert told me he was in the middle of the recording process when he learned Killer B had pneumonia.
“There was no way to treat him at that time, because there was nothing that we had done in the studio, so we were just stuck in the room.
And then when I got home, I just went and did a quick search on Facebook for all of Killer’s old music and I found this song called ‘Killa,” he said.
Robert said the Bsinger, a vocalist for several years, told him the song was a tribute to Killer B. “So I just listened to it and it was just the best song that I’ve ever heard.
It was really powerful,” Robert told us.
Robert and his brother also played Killer B and the B’s in an album called The Big One.
In 2013, the Big Ones released the video for their song “Crazy,” which they recorded in L.I. “That was a dream come true for me because I’m not sure I’ve seen a song that captures the emotion of ‘Kill’ so clearly and so well,” Robert explained.
