A while back somebody created an article about the last days of Keith Whitley.
In it was detailed just what happened prior to his death.
His album Don’t Close Your Eyes had done good on the charts with 2 #1’s which are “Don’t Close Your Eyes,” “When You Say Nothing At All” and “I’m No Stranger To The Rain.”The album also included “Flying Colors,””It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,”,”Birmingham Turnaround,””Same Ole Side Road,””Would These Arms Be In Your Way,””I Never Go Around Mirrors (I’ve Got a Heartache to Hide),””Day In The Life Of A Fool,” and “Honky Tonk Heart.”As you can tell he had great success.
Keith Whitley talked to his mom on the phone and invited her over to drink coffee with him.He had not drank no alcohol in weeks.Everything was going good for Keith Whitley.He had talked with his brother in law about going golfing which he planned on doing.His friend left him and when he returned,he was found face first on the bed,unresponsive.
This all seems suspicious.Medical Examiner Charles Harlan stated that his blood alcohol level was 0.47 has since been suspended from doing his work.
What really happened to Keith Whitley?
Someday we may know.
