    Failed to mention here that Andy WarholΒ΄s death could have been prevented. It’s true, that he was recovering from gallbladder surgery but he actually died from blood poisoning due to the nurse who was caring for him. She fell a sleep just when his drip bag needed changing..resulting in septicemia for poor old Andy… What a waste…

    Intersting man, interesting artist. Too bad he died in his 50s. Think about, the man could have been alive today continuing his art. By the way, I found this intersting article on another site called “How did Andy Warhol die?
