Jake Cameron and the Midnight Blues were a highly influential Blues and Smooth Jazz band that existed in the 1970's and 80's. Their debut release is considered their greatest release, and one of the best of it's genre and for its time. Despite it only being printed on 300 cassettes, it found its way into the hands of many metal and rock bands, and remains a staple in the life of music fans today. They are known for their sorrowful lyrics and incredibly inventive and unorthodox time signatures. In 1983, at age 31, lead singer Jake Cameroon (English translation of his name being Jake Cameron) died due to a self-inflicted starvation in an attempt to get help for his struggling family, following in the footsteps of his hero, Gandhi. However, the people were skeptical - as he was known for his odd quirks - and he tragically died within 3 weeks. A few years later, Josh Culbre't was killed in an accident with a lawnmower, yet many to this day believe he was murdered by his racist neighbour.
