Has it only been 5,000 consecutive shows for Beatle Bob? Seems like every time I've gone to a concert in the past 20 years he's there! Think they need to jack that number up to around 8,000!
He's very entertaining if you ask me. Like observing someone that's dropped a bit too much Window Pane or Purple Microdot.
I've known Bob for 30 years. Don't let the crazy dancing fool you...there is no more knowledgeable cat on the planet when it comes to rock music history as well as up-and-coming rock bands. Bob's encyclopedic musical knowledge cuts across all genres...rock, blues, jazz, country, gospel, world music, reggae etc. Case in point: Bob hits a lot of the more rockin' black churches on Sunday...he can tell you who's got the baddest choir, B-3 players etc...what else can I say? The cat's on duty 24/7!!!! We need more cats like him out there. I've played in joints where Bob is the ONLY serious fan in the place...
Wherever I play, Beatle Bob is always welcome and on the guest/backstage list if I have one...it is an honor for me if he picks my gig to attend...he is the Ultimate Music Fan, end of story...
