Bobby Fuller: I Fought The Law - The Life and Strange Death of Bobby Fuller

(2014/Kicks) English, Paperback, 23x15x2 cm, 296 pages, rare b/w photos, with discography..

First and only authorized biography of West Texas legend Bobby Fuller, 'Rock And Roll King Of The Southwest', as told through the eyes of his brother and bandmate Randell-- Randy Fuller. Fuller's teenage home garage recordings are pure, wild and heartstopping anthems that pushed him into the Hollywood big leagues where he was no longer in control of his music and career. The title song, plus Let Her Dance, Another Sad And Lonely Night, Shakedown and so many others are all world-class rock and roll favorites. He wrote the songs, recorded them in a garage studio that he built with Randy, released them on his own record labels, promoted and supported them himself, and opened his own teenage night club in El Paso. He was the king of the scene, and soon found himself bound for the coast where he wanted to bring his vision to a larger audience. This book tells the story of his early years, through the Texas teen days, and into the last eighteen months of his life when his career skyrocketed into the music charts, television and the movies, and he became an unwilling pawn to powerbrokers with little regard for his talent. He was found dead in a car, doused in gasoline, in July of 1966.

Bobby Fuller

The first time I heard the Bobby Fuller Four's Fought The Law," was a moment I'll never forget. Cruising in my Mustang down a dusty highway in Texas, the opening guitar riff started coming out of the AM radio and I new something special was about to happen. By the time the vocals kicked in I was hooked. This was rock 'n' roll perfection. I decided to explore more of Bobby's catalog and discovered that he had been recording for over five years before "I Fought The Law" became a Top Ten hit. Born in Baytown, Texas, Bobby Fuller grew up listening to the sounds of fellow Texan Buddy Holly and the rockabilly sound. After recording some regional hits in the early '60s Bobby and his combo moved to sunny Los Angeles where he briefly experimented recording surf music.

He hooked up with legendary producer Bob Keane and in 1965-66 released several popular singles including "The Magic Touch" and "Now She's Gone." It was during this time that Bobby began incorporating hints of British rock and psychedelia into his material. The unique combination proved groundbreaking and influential to a generation of artists. His big hit came in 1966 with the release of "I Fought The Law" and it seemed like Bobby Fuller's star was in full ascent. Sadly, it would be the last hit he would have. The story of Bobby Fuller's death reads like a good murder mystery. As a matter of fact, there was an episode of Unsolved Mysteries which dealt with his mysterious demise. On July 18, 1966 Bobby Fuller's badly beaten body was discovered in his parked car.

His death was attributed to asphyxia through forced inhalation of gasoline and was inexplicably ruled a suicide. In the years since his death there have been many rumors surrounding these circumstances - was there a cover up with the police? Was the mafia involved? While the true facts regarding Bobby Fuller's death may never be revealed, his legacy of music will forever be preserved.
