Bob started the band back in college at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island where he was a double major in philosophy and American Civilization. Bob took one legitimate music class in college. It was music theory. He sat behind Lisa Loeb. She did very well. Bob dropped the class when it became apparent that he had no chance of passing.*
Bob is not short. As a matter of fact he's 6'5" tall and was an all-state basketball player in high school and an all-bench player in college for a couple years. He did manage to amass quite a collection of jock straps however thanks to the Brown University athletic department.
Bob is a big fan of cats and you should also know that the guinea pigs on the cover of the first album were Bob's - respectively from left to right, Bea and Millie. The woman at the Boston Pet Center told him that he had purchased two female guinea pigs. She was wrong. Bob thought at first that he may have had a pair of progressive, lesbian guinea pigs. However, it soon became apparent that Millie was in fact Milton and Bob wound up having to pawn three guinea pig babies off on his little sister. Sadly, Millie died of an infection not long ago and Bea died a couple months later out of loneliness. Their legacy lives on.
Bob likes the following things: Breyers' Light Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Krispy Kreme Donuts, Notre Dame Football, seeing eye dogs, Woody Allen movies, South African pop music, Billy Bragg and a lot of other things.
Bob does not like: Most reptiles (but he's willing to learn).
* Lisa Loeb has sold a few million records. Bob sold one to his parents.
