On this day in 1966, Bobby Fuller was found dead in his corvette in front of City Hall. The death was ruled suicide although evidence points to foul play. Bobby and his music was heavily influenced by a man who preceded him in death by seven years. Bobby played the same make guitar as this man, had the same hiccup in his voice, even played the guitar with the same, unusual style as he did. You'll notice his influence in his songwriting as well. Who was the man?

Buddy Holly
