Bluesobit: Robert Lucas

The singer with Canned Heat, Robert Lucas, died on Sunday from an apparent drugs overdose.

Lucas joined Canned Heat in 1994. He quit after six years, but in 2005 took on a second spell singing (and playing bottleneck guitar). He recently quit the band again, in order to concentrate on his solo career - he had released a number of solo records when he wasn't working with the band.

Only 46 years old, Lucas is survived by his parents and a son.
