Country music and country fans lost a legend yesterday (Feb. 13, 2002) when Waylon Jennings died in his home in Phoenix, Arizona at the age of 64.
Jennings had long suffered with diabetes and complications arising from the disease. In November he went to the hospital to ease suffering from peripheral vascular disease that prevented him from being able to walk in comfort.
In, December, his left foot was amputated due to infection.
In his career which spanned over 30 years, Jennings recorded over 16 No. 1 country hits, 60 albums and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October 2001.
