He was the headlining performer at the Beverly Hills Supper Club, in Southgate, Kentucky, on the night of May 28, 1977. At approximately 9 PM that night, a fire began to rage through the club, eventually resulting in the deaths of 165 people. It was the second worst club fire in American history. John, fortunately, was not harmed. See more »
