Bob Bishop R.I.P. 03-12-1952 - 10-26-2023

I am just finding out about this today and totally bummed to hear about it. Bob was the man! I was close with him starting around 1992. He was the one who always hooked me and others up with the permission from GC to record audio and/or video at the sound booth. Got to hang with him many times all over the east coast in 90s and always had a great time. He was one funny guy too, we would laugh our asses off.

Yea, I believe it was you or Rodney that connected my Bob in 1993.

I was able to film 70 hours of footage because of Bob Bishop. May he rest in eternal peace.
