Bobby Fuller's story deserves better than this typo-riddled, horribly edited, patchy, confusing abomination.

“I Fought the Law” is an iconic rock & roll song. I will always be partial to the Clash version, but the Bobby Fuller Four version is the song that the Clash heard when they decide to record it. A few years ago I attended the Norton Records 25th Anniversary bash in NYC and got a chance to see Randy Fuller perform this classic. Randy was in the Bobby Fuller 4 and is also the co-author (along with Miriam Linna) of a long-overdue biography of Bobby Fuller.I’m really amazed that this story [...]

This is a pretty fascinating story about the pre-psychedelic music scene in Texas and Los Angeles in the early to mid-60's. Even though it's just about one band, the Bobby Fuller Four, you get a good feeling about how it probably went back then for a lot of the bands. Exhilarating and grim. The last third of this book is devoted to the mysterious death of Bobby Fuller that is still unsolved. If you enjoy true crime stories and music bio's, this is the book for you. It is a well researched, well [...]

The wild and woolly tale of the Fuller boys of El Paso--rock-and-roll perfectionist, Buddy Holly acolyte, and budding studio genius Bobby, and the rough-and-tumble, brawling pyromaniac Randell (the book's co-author). Rock and roll fans know them as part of the Bobby Fuller Four, who waxed the twin classics "I Fought the Law" and "Let Her Dance." The tale ends in Bobby's mysterious death, oft-discussed but here brought up to date if not finally cleared up. An essential read for fans of American r [...]

This book needs an editor. It consists of very long, edited quotes. The reader is often at a a loss for who is speaking or to what specific details the speaker is referring.

Maybe the best opening chapter of any biography I've ever read and then it drops off dramatically from there. The book and story are nearly incoherent by the end. Book writing, unlike garage rock, needs an editor and multiple takes. It's a shame because Bobby Fuller's story should be told and his work should get the credit it deserves.
