The Truth:This story is a hoax.
Sinbad is alive and well and looking forward to several appearance dates that are on his calendar.
The story of his demise started circulating on the Internet on a large scale on March 14 and 15, 2007.
The only source for this was a posting on Wikipedia.com, which is a site that depends on volunteer contributors for information. That story claimed that Sinbad, whose real name is David Atkins, died of a heart attack on March 14, 2007. A spokesperson for Wikipedia said that the alteration of the story had been unauthorized and that they were looking into whether they could identify who did it.
