John A. Fitzpatrick is a former Commodore 64 game composer and programmer. He was rarely credited in games; oddly, much more rarely than the programmers and graphic artists. He is probably mainly known because he put his name in his music driver. In 1986, he also put a phone number from San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California (where also his best client Datasoft was located) there. In 1984, his wife Susan did artwork.
