One More Thing …

You can read all the excellent articles and watch all videos about the mystery behind Bobby Fuller’s suicide, accidental death and/or murder. But all you really need to know is that a) he was murdered, and b) it involves Bob Keane, Larry Nunes and the infamously mobbed up Morris Levy.

Phil Spector (yes, that Phil Spector) loved Bobby Fuller. He even sat in with the BF4, sometimes playing keyboard with them at the Ambassador Lounge and at PJ’s, where they routinely packed the house.
