RIP – WILD MAN FISCHER


EXPIRED: 06/16/11 –   Wild Man Fischer, 66, suffered from schizophrenia & bipolar disorder & was institutionalized at 16 for attacking his mother w/a knife. Upon release he wandered LA singing songs for a dime. Frank Zappa discovered him & recorded his 1st album, An Evening w/ Wild Man Fischer.

I thought he was a genius.
