Tupper Saussy was a musician, artist, tax activist ... and fugitive. The songwriter for the '60s group The Neon Philharmonic spent a decade on the lam, protesting a tax claim, but had just finished a recent CD when he died at 70.

(Craig Havighurst reports for member station WPLN in Nashville, Tenn.)
