I only really learned about him this year; he was with The Mac from the end of 1971 to the end of 1974, and played on the Future Games, Bare Trees, Penguin, Mystery To Me, and Heroes Are Hard To Find albums.

That's five albums in three years, along with touring, writing and recording. When you think that a band now will put out an album and spend two years touring it before taking a year to write and record the next one, and then need a rest, you get an idea of how hard musicians worked back then.

RIP Bob
