    Bobby was killed after White Trash broke up. He was working with Jerry Lacroix’ band which contained just about all the White Trash members minus Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer. They were touring and were inChicago at the time of Bobby’s murder. Edgar was already working with the Edgar Winter Group at that time.

    Bobby Will Live In Our Hearts And Memories May He Rest In Eternal Peace.

  4. I called Bobby's house to talk to his Dad(Al) and Bobby answered the phone. He and I went played pool and had a few beers. The next night(Sat.) White Trash played at the Bamoo Club in Lake Charles, LA and he put my wife(karen) and I on the guest list. What a great friend and person. I never saw Bobby mad and was loved by everyone. He died that that same month in 1972. I miss you Buddy! RIP
