History TodayDecember 10, 1967: Otis Redding, soul-singer of the song “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” was killed in a plane crash. Redding was on his way to Cleveland when his plane crashed into a small lake three miles from the runway. Redding and seven other men on board the plane were killed. Redding was actually in process of writing his famous song, and meant to replace the whistled verse with lyrics. After his death, however, the whistle was left in as a tribute to Redding. It would go on to become the biggest hit of his career, posthumously.
