RIP Bob Bain (1924-2018)

Maurice Summerfield sadly sent me this link about guitar legend Bob Bain who passed away last week. An unsung hero hidden away in the Hollywood studios for many decades Bob Bain's achievements were monumental. Many a well-known recording or film soundtrack had Bob Bain in the rhythm section. The link above tells his story in fascinating detail.
Bob Bain was 94.
Rest In Peace.
Lance

I've just read this obituary. Fascinating, as you say Lance.
I've watched the video clips too. These top studio/session players were just amazing and such stories they can tell.
