Percussionist for Chicago from 1974 thru 1980 (having worked with them prior to joining). I just found out he died of a heart attack at 77, 5 days ago.

I saw a Chicago documentary on TV earlier this year, with interviews with some of the original members. But one thing that struck me -- and disappointed me -- was how de Oliveira wasn't acknowledged whatsoever. I think he deserved better. (By the way, it wasn't until many years after I became a Chicago fan that I learned how to pronounce his name: LAW-zher de oh-li-VAIR-a.)
