Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol died on Billy Name's birthday on February 22, 1987 at 6:31 a.m. while recovering from a gallbladder operation. His doctor indicated that prior to the operation Warhol's health was "good" in his hospital admission papers. Warhol's estate brought a wrongful-death lawsuit against the hospital which was settled out of court for three million dollars. (See: How did Andy Warhol die?)
