    Was lucky to see him in the UK in a small theatre. A very entertaining performer who really connected with the audience. A sad loss.

    Amazing performer, with an unequivable and inimitable knowledge of his instrument, & nice guy to chat with (met him about 5 times at gigs, master-classes and exhibitions), but a very sad turn of events that lead to his end.

    He was a Diamond Bottleneck user, at least in the latter years. As I know one of the guys behind them and he has a mortgage to pay I'll take the opportunity to give them a plug.

    Bob probably not my cup of tea musically although obviously a very clever and hugely talented man. Although a very messy end to his life whatever your take on it.

    As a fellow Diamond bottleneck user and National player, I have to admit that the comparisons with Bob Brozman end there: he was a great player and entertainer. :cool:

    I was in awe of his music once, then I found out what he had done. Any admiration has since been undone.

    I met him many years ago at a Musical Saw Festival in Santa Cruz, CA. He shamed me for sending my National to the Dobro company to have it repaired. He was a great player and had a lot of knowledge about the music and it's history. It's sad that his private life was so messed up. If you can separate his life from his music, there's a lot to like. But it's not easy for me to do.
