The Bobcast Bob May 6th 2013 Cropped

Cam is still swamped with his work (and passion) for this year’s Indie Week, so I thought I would search the DBAWIS Archives to see what we were doing during this week in past years.

This column originally appeared on October 12th, 2013. Like 2016, a lot of great musicians and friends alike took their leave of this life, unexpectedly and far too soon, and left many of us to remember them with fondness and see to it that they are not forgotten.

CamSad. I posted one word on my Facebook status earlier this week. I had just heard that a dear friend had passed away after a long and very courageous battle, and that was what I was feeling. Outside of band updates and the occasional link to an event I rarely post anything either personal or political on my Facebook status. I rarely check in at concerts and you will never see a kitty, puppy or what I am eating, or drinking, posted on my wall. My kids are adults so there are no cute pictures of them on their first day of school or wearing their best Halloween costumes. Not my style.

CamIt’s sports overload right now as the NHL season has kicked off, baseball playoffs have started, the English Premier League and Champions League are in full swing and Canadian Graham DeLaet gets ready to tee it up with some of the world’s best at The Presidents Cup this weekend.  Throw in the NASCAR chase and NFL and CFL it is lucky that I don’t have cable as I imagine I would be spending a lot of time alone.
