Bob became interested in playing bass as a teenager after watching many bands perform in Detroit area venues such as Michigan Palace, Cobo Hall and Masonic Temple. After researching the instrument, he discovered that in those days the bass guitar was expensive and not easy to come by. He ended up buying a $30 six string guitar instead. In the 70's Bob sang and played lead and rhythm guitar in original music local punk / new wave bands that played the Detroit dive bar circuit. In the 80's he sold out, covering the top 40's and oldies in exchange for money. In 1987 he took a break from playing in bands in order to raise his family. In 2010, his daughter and son out on their own, he began playing bass guitar with a local progressive rock band and then a three man oldies band. He currently plays bass with the talented musicians of the Motor City Memories Band.
