It was a horrible shock last night to learn that Bobby unexpectedly passed away. Bobby was a fixture in the local Sacramento metal/punk scene. Whenever we saw each other at shows, we would talk about our old metal days. One time, he held a contest on fb for a free slayer biography. The best slayer story got the book. I had an unfair advantage since Matt Polish and I used to hang out with them so I won. I still have the book and I’ll cherish it a bit more now. I’m so sad, he was a really nice guy.
Here is a video from the only time I saw his band, Crude Studs play. I don’t know why it doesn’t sound as good as my usual videos- I think I had my rode mic on the wrong setting.
