November 18, 1972: Danny Whitten, guitarist for Neil Young’s backing band Crazy Horse, died of a heroin overdose in Los Angeles. He was 29 years old. Although the song wasn’t specifically about Whitten, Neil Young wrote “The Needle and the Damage Done” about musicians throwing away their lives to heroin.
