Instead of choking on a piece of sandwich, Mama Cass Elliot died of a heart attack on July 29, 1974 aged 32.

She was born Ellen Naomi Cohen and rose to fame with The Mamas & the Papas, an excellent folk rock vocal group of the mid to late 60s. After the breakup of The Mamas & the Papas, Cass Elliot embarked on a solo singing career. Her most successful song was “Dream a little dream of me”, which reached No. 12 on the US (Billboard Hot 100) and No. 11 in the UK in 1968.
