Forgotten Hits: 50 Years Ago Today

Forgotten Hits: 50 Years Ago Today (July 18th): On July 18th, 1966, the body of Rock And Roll Star Bobby Fuller was found dead parked inside his vehicle. His entire body had been saturated with gasoline and he was lying face down in the front seat of the car with an open gas can beside him. The doors and windows were closed ... but not locked.

Fuller was dating Nancy Sinatra at the time much to the displeasure of Frank. There is a theory that some mob associates of Frank murdered him.

He fought the law (or Frank), and lost.

Well, damn. I did not know this. "I Fought the Law" is the first song I remember hearing on my first transistor radio, ca. 1964. VERY strange.
