Larry 'Wild Man' Fischer, the outsider musician who initially came to attention in the 1960's after performing his songs on the streets of Hollywood and later signed to Frank Zappa's Bizarre Records, has died at the age of 66.

Fischer released several albums and gained a cult following, but struggled with mental issues throughout his life and spent his final years in an assisted living facility.
