California rocker Chuck Prophet describes his new album, "Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins," as "California Noir,” inspired in part by the mysterious death of rocker Bobby Fuller in L.A. in 1966.
Chuck sat down with "Extra's" Senior Music Correspondent Adam Weissler to talk about his acclaimed new record, out now.
The album includes songs about Fuller, the death of David Bowie, and the killing of San Francisco security guard Alex Nieto – which drew international headlines as “Death by Gentrification.” He cut the album to tape at Hyde Street Studio in San Francisco, which also happens to be the same studio where Prophet did his first recording session while still in high school.
Chuck gave an exclusive performance for "Extra" of “Bad Year for Rock and Roll,” a song from the album, and a timely homage to rock greats lost in 2016.
