Bob Log III

Ladies and gentlemen. Tucson's own... Bob Log III

Now, I've seen this guy live. He's a real hoot. Bob Log III is a Tucson favorite, playing straight, down-home slide guitar with his own percussion, a real treat to see. Turns out he's a real nice guy off stage too, not afraid to say hi to a fan who recognizes him without his trademark helmet.

He introduces himself:

"Bob Log the third, one-man band, Tucson, Arizona. Heyeeeh! Lemme introduce the band to ya. On cymbals, left foot. Over here on the bass drum we got right foot. Shut up! This is my left hand that does all the slide work, right hand does the pickin'. My mouth hole does most o' the talkin'. And you're looking at my finger."

If you live in Tucson, or he's coming to your area, go on and see him live. If not, do what you can to find some of his music or look up a video or two on teh youtube.
