Jerry Granelli Death Cause

He was going to be performing in December in Halifax and the fans were pretty excited about seeing the legend perform but it seems like that the time was against us as he has passed away and the news has been despair for the fans, he has been an artist for over 60 years now which is just insane in itself and there was no stopping him as he has tours planned all across Europe and Canada.

Before his 80th birthday he suffered from a case of internal bleeding which caused him to be in the hospital for about 2 months, he managed to win over those challenges but he then departed pretty suddenly and he died peacefully as his son has stated in a post on Facebook.

The death of the legend has been a bummer for many as he was one of the most renowned and most veteran artists when it comes to Jazz and the only was could have been stopped was death and it seems like that this has been one hell of a journey of an artist who has given his whole life to entertain people and has been an icon for many as people have been pouring love for the legend on different social media platforms.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family and we hope that his soul receives peace.
