THE BOBBY FULLER FOUR
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

Born in Baytown, Texas, Fuller spent most of his youth in El Paso, Texas. He idolized fellow Texan Buddy Holly and pursued his own music career as a vocalist and guitarist. During the early 1960s, he played in clubs and bars, and recorded on independent record labels in Texas, with a constantly changing line-up. The only constant band members were Fuller and his younger brother, Randy Fuller on bass. Most of these independent releases were recorded in the Fullers' own home studio, with Fuller acting as the producer. The quality of the recordings, using a couple of microphones and a mixing board purchased from a local radio station, was so impressive that he offered the use of his 'studio' to local acts for free so he could hone his production skills. Fuller moved to Los Angeles in 1964 with his band The Bobby Fuller Four and was signed to Mustang Records. His first Top 40 hit was the self-penned "Let Her Dance". His second hit, "I Fought the Law", hit No. 8 on Billboard. The song was written by Sonny Curtis, a former member of Buddy Holly's group The Crickets. The group's third Top 40 single was a cover of Holly's "Love's Made a Fool of You. Just after "I Fought The Law" became a Top 10 hit, Fuller was found dead in an automobile parked outside his Hollywood apartment. Despite the official cause of death, some commentators believe Fuller was murdered. Erik Greene, a relative of the late singer Sam Cooke, has cited similarities in the deaths of Cooke and Fuller. The only one which survives scrutiny is that both attended the same night club. Fuller bandmate, Jim Reese, suspected that Charles Manson may have had something to do with Fuller's death but has never provided credible evidence. A sensationalist crime website has speculated that the LAPD may have been involved because of Bobby's connection to a Mafia-related woman.
