Fact #84182


Short story:

Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin alleged to have killed US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, is shot dead by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. Classic ska band The Skatalites will record a bouncy instrumental called Lee Harvey Oswald, but Ruby will inspire several more songs including Bicentennial [1976] by Loudon Wainwright III, Jack Ruby [1989] by Camper Van Beethoven, Jack Ruby [1993] by Paul Metsa, and Jack Ruby [1998] by Deep Purple.
