Bob was always looking for ways to make people laugh. I knew him years ago while he was the guitarist a band with my husband. We were much younger then and having fun and being a prankster was Bob's specialty and I always enjoyed that in him.
I am not sure how many people know what a metronome is but to assist those who don't, this, from Wikipedia: A metronome, from ancient Greek μέτρον (métron, "measure") and νέμω (némo, "I manage", "I lead"), is a device that produces an audible click or other sound at a regular interval that can be set by the user, typically in beats per minute (BPM). Musicians use the device to practice playing to a regular pulse. Metronomes typically include synchronized visual motion (e.g., swinging pendulum or blinking lights). - Well, Bob's definition was far more creative. "A Metronome is a Gnome that lives in the city."
Thanks for all of the laughter and smiles and happy memories Bob. If there's a Rock 'n Roll heaven...., well, you know the rest.
