I Fought the Law
#9 in 1966
|Robert Gaston Fuller (Bobby Fuller) was born in Baytown, Texas
on Octorer 22, 1942. Fuller moved to Los Angeles in 1964 with his band
The Bobby Fuller Four, and was signed to Mustang Records by producer Bob
Keane, who was noted for discovering Ritchie Valens. Just after "I
Fought The Law" became a top ten hit, Bobby Fuller was found dead
on July 18, 1966, in his automobile, which was parked near his Los
Angeles home. The police considered the death an apparent suicide,
however, many people believe Fuller was murdered. Fuller is buried in
the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
