Otis Redding died in a plane crash when he was twenty-six, December of 1967, just a few weeks before his song (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay was released. Song became his biggest hit -- up the charts with a bullet, to #1.

Had he survived, today would have been his 69th birthday.

I love that song - thanks for the video too. I know there are background ocean sounds but at about the 1:06 and 2:01 part of the track is that electric guitar seagulls I hear?

Sounds like it to me.
