Well, partner, another year has come and gone. Everyone has “seen” me in a hundred different places this year. I’ve been moving around a lot because each time someone thinks it’s me the press comes snooping around and I have to move on. This year I got caught outside an “Oasis” show and barely got to the limo before they caught up with me. Stayed in England for a couple of months before someone spotted me. Even at my age I guess I still look like “The King”. Of course, I can’t be all those places at the same time. They thought I was in the drainage tunnels below Las Vegas. Now what in the world would I be doing there!?? Me, The King of Rock and Roll! Sometimes, I dunno, partner….. you’d think by now they’d just give up. Being a dead teen idol is no easy task, I’ll tell you! I am getting a bit tired of it and would like to just settle down somewhere but they wouldn’t let me if I tried. Then there’d be all the messy legal entanglements and everyone would want to know what I thought about that Lisa and Michael thing. I’ll tell you- I was pretty damn disgusted. Kids these days. They just don’t listen to you. Lisa Marie said on the phone one day “Daddy, if you don’t come out of hiding I’m going to do something drastic!” Well, if I’d have known she had THAT in mind I probably would have come out of hiding just to stop that crap! But I didn’t want to give her the satisfaction of being the one to lure me out. Daughter or NO daughter! Besides, she’s a big girl now, and I never worried about her and Michael Jackson because I’m sure they never spent one night together (in bed). Gawd! It makes me all shook up to imagine that. I noticed this year you bought a waverunner. Doncha’ just love those things! I got a couple of ‘em on my island and me and the boys tear the hell out of ‘em. I keep a mechanic on the island just to keep the damn things runnin’. Bet you’re wondering how I knew about the Waverunner………Well, remember last summer when you took Robert across the stern of a big ol’ cigarette boat and got major air? You damn near chased me a mile up the lake runnin’ back and forth behind my wake. I could hear you and Robert screaming as you brought that thing completely out of the water. I almost stopped but had second thoughts and kept on going. Maybe some day next summer we’ll “cross wakes” again and I’ll tip my captain’s hat to you. I still like to hang around my old home digs, but He;;…. I can’t even visit Graceland! Besides, it’s become such a zoo I wouldn’t even enjoy it. Have a good year and keep Robert happy. I gotta’ fly to Hawaii to my secret hideaway there for a month or two.

I apologize for my guestbook being out of commission since September 6th, when our files were moved to a new server system. I wasn't even aware of the problem until I started getting personal email bringing it to my attention. I just thought people stopped signing !! My SysOp (My MAIN Man) has made it all better again.

Being head-injured, coma almost three weeks, find out what I found out when I went to Heaven. You'll be very surprised and enlightened by the Trinity's magnificent, mellifluous knowledge: With such a price-tag on our souls, human beings are clearly precious beyond diamonds; Declarations can never describe how effusively colorful and illuminating Upstairs was... and is forever. Sign the GB, too. God Bless You with discernment. Tell others about my killer URL -b9, the Catalyst4Christ

Well, don't get the opportunity to see ya much anymore, but glad to see that you are as ornery as ever. I don't think you can use age as an excuse for that, because you have been that way as long as i have known ya, and that has been almost 15 years.....Keep on rocking, Bob, and if ya ever need a honky-tonky piano player to put down some tracks, you know where to find me. BTW-for those of you that don't know Bob, I have to say that he is one of the best engineers I have ever worked with. Keep the faith.........

Hiya Bobbo,I surfed on in late on a Sunday night. You are indeed a busy boy! I loved the URL-bulleted format and spunky comet effects. No criticism here, just one suggestion which I think you could stuff in to enhance the Cedar Crest Experience: Can you add some sound effects or music loops? I could hear myself breathe! And for relevant impact, I think it would be cool to have some kind of "Dropping into Arkansas from the Skies" aerial map, with a voice-over using your inimitable Arkie accent!! Never thought of that, didja? I did!! Dan the Kramer

My URL instructs us about our Eternity (sign the guestbook): How inevitably both are determined and molded by the choices we make in our voyage home to the Father; This URL is both a stairway AND a roadmap TO that Utopian Domicile. Step out in faith: Experience the Awesome Reality of God. You're the spark. You're a warrior. You're His treasure. He deemed it so. Your service is good. Your love towards God is better. How He yearns to welcome us into His everlasting home beyond death's horizon: With such a price-tag on our souls, human beings are clearly precious beyond diamonds. You must abandon all fear of Him and know that He is all love. Say this: "Father, I love you and I give myself to you." And He wills that you inherit His Kingdom... PEACE. You ARE loved by the Trinity. See beyond illusion: Read Daniel 12:3

My name is Edmund Marco and it's a pleasure to sign your guest book. I work for an advertising agency in London. Our agency represents direct marketing companies that are involved in the marketing of products as seen on TV in England. Most of the infomercial products come from the U.S. but then again we export our talents as well. My brother has appeared in infomercials in the U.S. advertising various products. I think it's hilarious that English people respond so well to American products while Americans tend to respond well to sales people who have an English accent!

Hey Bob, It has been almost a year since I Willed you my old Altec 250 T3 and Cart Machines, but I didn't die on the table, so I'm still using them... sorry :-) I still listen to your 365 site and play your tunes on my poor excuse for a broadcast. Yeah, I still have the ol' 67 Rolls that ended up not belonging to Roy. It remains a can-hardly-roll-Rolls Royce. ( ha ha ) Nonetheless, ya just can't cry over Spilt Milk. Rock On!

Hi Bob, Your website is great as usual. I like the feature "News In the Woods" alot, and am glad you are re-releasing past articles that formerly were published in the "Nightflying" paper. That "Live365" is the greatest radio station on the net! Keep up all the good installs to your website!

I jumped in a new Honda, and drove from LA, Calif. to NYC, over Christmas. I enjoyed the drive more than the destination and appreciated the contrast and beauty of Arkansas and Tennessee. For a guy that has filmed documentaries in 26 countries, from Inca ruins to the snow swept Arctic, I have lensed a lot of images. I now work in creative finance and play bass in a pro jazz/blues club band in Los Angeles. Having said that, I want to compliment you and say, YOUR SITE IS FANTASTIC! Having recovered from my sensory overload, and viewing the various pages...... the work and time of constructing such a personal and professional epic makes it one of the best I have seen on the Internet. Drivng through your part of the country made me want to come back there someday. Los Angeles and NYC jade your senses after awhile...and the view of the lake from your studio window was refreshing to say the least. You have archived and detailed your achievements in a stimulating presentation. One could spend several days just going thru your listed links, thoughts, and material that reflects a lifetime career. Your site is a colorful and wonderful display of information. Wishing you the best. Michael Sherrer

Hi Bob, I'm sure you don't remember me but I graduated in '63 from AFA. Went back a month ago, first time in almost 40 years (we sure don't look the same!). Just thought I would say hi, our careers sort of parallel each other as far as music industry goes, I have been a live audio engineer for 30 years spending the last 15 years at a performing arts hall in Sarasota, Fl, Named the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, proir to that I worked in the New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts areas. Owned two sound companies and toured around the world for various people.Other than that, nothing as exciting as your career! At any rate just thought I would say "HI" and maybe we'll see each other at some Homecoming.....Take Care...."Flip"

You have one of the most "ideal" places for a studio,(a place I've always dreamed of) , the beautiful hills of Northern Arkansas. I think any "big city" artists would have a refreshing "break" by being able to record somewhere like that, where they could get away from everything but the music. Peace and Good luck to you, hope to visit sometime when I'm up that way!!
