Beloved (except by killjoys) St. Louis concert fixture, fanzine journalist, Guided By Voices video star and all around marcher to a different drum Beatle Bob has passed.

I think it was only within the last year that he finally retired from concert attendance due to an ALS diagnosis. Prior to that (not counting the pandemic interruption of the concert industry), he'd been to a concert every night for decades, dancing away in his red smoking jacket.

Rest in peace, Bob. Robert Pollard rightly declared you my kind of soldier.

Sorry to hear… didn’t we just have a thread about him not that long ago ( I think)?

Yes, about six months ago when his ALS diagnosis was first announced and his concert going had to stop.
