From the "Amazon Hot Wax" episode (02/16/79) of superhero television series [ Wonder Woman]. A successful folk singer on the Phoenix Records Label, his disappearance drives the whole episode's plot. Turns out he faked his own death so his memorial album, Farewell to the Master, would go through the roof. But he left clues hidden in the songs and on the cover of his What's My Moniker, Veronica album (which resembles the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's cover).
Phoenix label-mates AntiMatter figure them out and discover Billy (Martin Speer) hiding out at his boarded-up Santa Monica house. Hey, dumbass! You can't cash royalty checks if you're supposed to be dead!
