|Bob Penko "Babe Magnet"|
When original bass player Matt got whisked away for another relocation with the federal witness protection program, Dan's 1st thought for a replacement was Bob Prenko. Dan worked with Bob on some earlier projects and knew he would be able to jump right in. Bob, however, was a tough sell. Enjoying his retirement from the music scene and living off his royalty checks in the Virgin Islands, Bob was happy, settled in, and no desire to leave his comfy island retreat for the rigors of a touring club band! Dan flew down to try anyway!
| Yes, Bob was a highly sought after commodity in his touring days. Instead of listing all the famous artists he's worked with, it'd be easier to list the few he hasn't. We know he's never worked with Cher and contrary to all the tabloid stuff, Bob was NEVER a member of the Beatles. This is the 1st time he's ever worked with "The Jenn", although they both worked on projects with David Bowie at different times. Most of Bob's royalty income is through his inovations that have found their way to 75% of the bass guitars that are manufactured in the world today.
Well, not sure what was said when Dan flew down to talk to him, but, alas, Bob agreed to throw his sterling career in the trash and join this insanity for one more trip around the circuit. I think Dan promised to change the name to BOB'S LAST BAND!
