  • Mickey Lynnes I've known Bob since the early 60's. He was always a great guy and a fellow rider too. Back then he used to wait at the back door of Fourniers Ballroom and help my band carry in our drums and guitars. He even had a matching shirt. He won't admit it though. What a character! I'll miss seeing you Bob.
