Paul Mattox

According to this online auction of a vinyl pressing of this album, this man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Daytona Beach (not sure what year). Apparently, he wrote and arranged all the songs on his albums by himself. 

Update: Paul Mattox himself posted on our Facebook page that this story of his passing is fabricated, and indeed he is alive and well!

  3. He's not dead. I'm his daughter and as of the time of this writing, I can tell you he lives lives in Texas, just outside of Austin. It's so funny that so many places online, I see it listed that he died in a motorcycle accident. It's always a good laugh for us.
