    He's the whole reason I smoked Dunlops in college and hung out in Georgetown !

    Well, at least we have his videos...

    that's a shame!
    his older stuff is pretty cool (before the clone vids).
    how old was he?
  5. Yeah, man, this stinks!

    I always liked this guy; he just dripped with coolness. I recently bought one of his greatest hits CDs. Every Kind of People is one of my favorite songs, and Motown bass player Bob Babbitt plays on that track. No wonder it sounds so good.

    R.I.P. Robert.

    Mike :(

    I had started a thread on this, but deleted it; no sense in having two of them.
  6. Damn shame.

    Loved his work with Power Station and with Little Feat. Just heard his "Drive" album the other week........super bluesy. It included a version of ZZ Top's "TV Dinners."

    damn ... i haven't listened to any RP for like, 10 years ... and just last week, i pulled "riptide" out of my cd rack and brought it into the car to listen to ...

    now this ... bummer ... he definitely had some crazy basslines in that band ...
  10. Just looking for clues was one if not my fav 80's song. Terrible loss!!!! I only wish he'd put more music out after his huge sucess in the 80's.
  11. I just love Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley album. Sailing Shoes/ Hey Julia/ Sneakin' Sally are great songs. I used to have a lot of his stuff on tapes. I may have get a few of his cd's.

    On AMG's web site he's listed as playing bass on most of his albums though I'm not sure how much actual he played.
