It was reported that Jim Fuller, guitarist for Surfaris and key creative mind behind the iconic song Wipeout has died at the age of 69.
It is not yet clear what exactly caused this untimely death, but we do know that he has been battling persistent health issues for quite some time now.
Jim Fuller, alongside his bandmates in Surfaris helped usher in an era of music that had one of the biggest cultural influence of all time. The iconic song Wipeout is testament to that. Once you heard that riff, you knew it was time to grab the sunscreen, sandals, and surf-board. That’s what an iconic song and iconic band can do.
As of right now we have yet to hear from the band, but we can expect a statement soon, as well as from the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this sad time.
Thank you Mr. Fuller for creating generation defining music that we cherish to this day. You will be missed!
