Found it Indigo Parrish found Sir_Bob_Is... The Worlds Best Dad

Monday, July 11, 2011Texas

Sir Bob is ... a really swell guy.

But did you also know that he is a founding member of 'Digital Cry' -- the best Austin 1980's hair band you've never heard of?

In 1988 the Austin Chronicle raved :

"Digital Cry brings Analog Pain to the eardrums ..."
"More introspective than Motörhead ..."
"More colorful than Johnny Cash ..."
"More arms than Def Leppard ..."

Their second album 'All Sales Final' sold surprisingly well due to the remarkable (and entirely coincidental) resemblance of its album cover to Van Halen's '1984'.

The height of their fame occurred in 1989 when they were accidentally signed to open for Iron Maiden's summer tour due to a clerical error.

Infamous for their 20 minute Yamaha DX-7 marimba solos (during which the other band members would sell T-shirts at the concession stand) their moment in the sun passed with the advent of Grunge and the invention of Rogaine.

With the breakup of 'Digital Cry', Sir Bob was briefly a member of Mötley Crüe until being kicked out of that band for being 'a bad influence'. He now resides in Austin, still writing songs and preparing for the inevitable reunion tour. Rock on Sir Bob!!
