Claim to Fame:
"I fought the law and the law won" These words became an anthem for a generation of disaffected youth during the turbulent 60s. Written and sung by Bobby Fuller fronting the Bobby Fuller Four, like so many young talent of those unsettling times was destined to die a tragic death. A death that is a source of controversy and speculation today.

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.

Fun Fact:

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.
