Brian Blair in the Killer Bees label group), who said Johnson had been managing will a sickness in a matter of seconds before his demise.
"He was simply sickly, he thought he had this season's flu virus or something," Blair told the outlet. "I stated, 'You, have to get looked at, Rocky.' He said he'd be OK. At that point he missed this Sunday, a couple of days prior. At the point when I conversed with him once more, he said regardless he wasn't feeling better despite everything he missed church. Regardless he didn't get looked at. I conversed with Sheila and she said he was simply being difficult. He kicked the bucket at home, today."
