- cause of death : unconfirmed
Trumpeter Ben Cauley, a member of the Stax Records group the Bar-Kays and the only survivor of the 1967 plane crash that killed most of his bandmates and Stax star Otis Redding, has died in Memphis. He was 67.
Cauley’s eldest daughter, Chekita Cauley-Campbell, said her father died late Monday at Methodist South Hospital. His death was first reported by The Commercial Appeal.
While he has long been known as the sole survivor of the crash that killed Redding, Cauley was a survivor in many other ways.
He had struggled with health issues for years, including a stroke he suffered in 1989, but he persevered through all of it and continued to play his trumpet.
“He was just a real humble, debonair gentleman,” Cauley-Campbell said. “He really loved his music. His music was really his life. He breathed music.”
