• Otis Reading died three days after recording "on the dock of the bay" in a plane crash.

      That's weird. Otis REDDING, the guy who recorded the most famous version of the same song, also died three days after he recorded it, and he too died in a plane crash. Uncanny!
  • I don't know who Otis Reading was. The version of "Dock Of The Bay" I remember as a child was by Otis Redding, and he died shortly after he recorded it. I think it was the last song he recorded. It turned out to be his biggest hit, but sadly he didn't live to see it reap the reward it richly deserved.
