Nate Dogg' s funeral date set
Nate Dogg's funeral is set to take place on Saturday (26.03.11).
The 'Regulate' singer's sister, Pamela Hale-Burns, confirmed he will be laid to rest in Long Beach, California.
Nate - real name Nathaniel Dwayne Hale - passed away aged 41 from complications arising from strokes he had suffered in 2007 and 2008 last Tuesday (15.02.11).
There will be a service open to the public at Long Beach Airport before the service is held, and the next day (27.03.11) there will be a memorial benefit for the singer at the Los Angeles Convention Center, hosted by DJ Quik, which will also be a public event.
Meanwhile another of Nate's closest friends, Warren G - who collaborated with him on his biggest hit 'Regulate'in 1994 - has called his death a "crushing blow".
Speaking of hearing Nate's death, he said: "We had got the word from his family on what was going on, and it was just a crushing blow for us."
"Just from going to see him and lifting his spirits up when he was in therapy, and stuff like that, it's just crazy for that to happen. And I still don't believe it, you know what I'm saying?"Posted on 22 Mar 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
