Chas Chandler, 57
NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, England -- Chas Chandler, producer of Jimi Hendrix's first two albums and bass player on the 1960s hit "The House of The Rising Sun," died Wednesday. He was 57.
Mr. Chandler, former member of The Animals, died at Newcastle General Hospital where he was undergoing tests related to an aortic aneurysm, said Keith Altham, a long-time friend. "It appears he suffered some form of attack as he slept," Mr. Altham said.
Mr. Chandler was playing in the Alan Price Trio in 1962 when vocalist Eric Burdon joined the band. They renamed the group The Animals.
Their first hit song was "Rising Sun" in 1964, followed by others including "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," "Bring It On Home to Me" and "We've Gotta Get out of this Place."
"We toured non-stop for three years, 300 gigs a year and we hardly got a penny," Mr. Chandler told The Independent newspaper in 1994.
After the group split up in 1966, Mr. Chandler turned to managing other rock stars. After meeting Mr. Hendrix, Mr. Chandler recruited Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding to form The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Mr. Chandler produced the first two Hendrix albums, "Are You Experienced?" and "Axis: Bold as Love," but quit halfway through "Electric Ladyland," frustrated with the hangers-on and endless re-recording of tracks. Mr. Hendrix died in London in 1970.
"My only obvious regret is I wonder if I didn't walk out maybe he would still be alive. He is a loss; he was a good friend," Mr. Chandler said in a 1991 Associated Press interview.
Mr. Chandler went on to manage other groups. Recently, he and his business partner Nigel Stanger, a one-time Animals saxophonist, developed Newcastle Arena, a 10,500-seat sports and entertainment venue that opened last year.
Mr. Chandler was born Bryan Chandler on Dec. 18, 1938, in Heaton, near Newcastle.
He is survived by his wife, Madeleine, their three children, and a son by a previous marriage.

Paul Touvier
PARIS -- Former militia chief Paul Touvier, the only Frenchman convicted of World War II crimes against humanity, died today in prison. He was 81.
Mr. Touvier, who was convicted in 1994 of ordering the deaths of seven Jews, died in a hospital at Fresnes prison south of Paris, court officials said. He had prostate cancer.
Mr. Touvier ordered the executions by firing squad in reprisal for the murder of Vichy propaganda chief Philippe Henriot by the French Resistance.
Mr. Touvier was a key aide during World War II to Gestapo chief Klaus Barbie, the "Butcher of Lyon," tracking Jews and Resistance fighters and frequently confiscating their possessions.
"Justice was done," said Nazi hunter and lawyer Serge Klarsfeld.
Referring to Mr. Touvier and Mr. Barbie, who also died behind bars, he said: "From the moment they were in prison because of a just decision, their fate was of no further importance to us."
Although Jewish groups were satisfied by Mr. Touvier's conviction, many historians say he had only a secondary role in the arrest and deportations of Jews in France during World War II.
His superiors, including former Budget Minister Maurice Papon and Rene Bousquet, Vichy's national police chief during the war, avoided trial. Charges are still pending against Mr. Papon. Mr. Bousquet was assassinated in 1994 by a crazed publicity seeker.
Some 75,000 Jews from France were sent to Nazi death camps during the war, and only 2,500 returned.
Though twice convicted in absentia for treason, Mr. Touvier was pardoned by Premier Georges Pompidou in 1971 at the behest of leading Roman Catholic Church officials.
"The time has come to throw a veil over the period when the French were engaged in hatred, civil strife and even murder," Premier Pompidou said.
Outraged by the pardon, Resistance groups and Jewish survivors came forward with evidence to bring new charges, but Mr. Touvier went back into hiding.
Mr. Touvier remained a fugitive, moving from convent to monastery under assumed names with his wife and two children until he was arrested at a Roman Catholic priory in Nice in 1989.

Friends said yesterday that Mr. Liepa was an amazing fisherman who would give the shirt off his back to a stranger.
Born and raised in Latvia, Mr. Liepa fled to Sweden after the Russian troops invaded his homeland following World War II.

After retiring, Mr. Liepa took a job as a night clerk at the Mariner's Home where he has worked for the past 10 years.
A former member of the New Bedford Fisherman's Union, he recently was honored by the New Bedford Port Society with a plaque for 10 years of outstanding work at the Mariner's Home.
