A little something something for all the Bob Stinson fans in the place.
I am the queen of the underground, a bad ungrateful bunny.
That was really cool…..bob is missed
God bless Bob…somewhere, in his honor, a pink dress hangs on a broken mike stand. Take it, Bobby.
There’s a pretty good article about Bob, written by his bandmate Ray Reigstad at the Static Taxi site:
This part is interesting:
“He always looked older than he was. The doctor who did the autopsy on him said he had the body of a seventy year old man. Just like Charlie “The Bird” Parker. They were both 35 at the time of death and they were both musical pioneers with their respective instruments. Puissant players. They both died broke and they both drank a lot. They both liked heroin toward the end too”.
I though the same thing when looking at some of the photos in AOBTS, especially pages 257 and 263. He was in his early 30’s when those pictures were taken, but he looks about 50.
yeah, i stumbled onto that article as well. had some nice insights id never heard.
