Comments from Bob Bierwirth...aka..."RGB":
Blessed with the pleasure of
having collaborated with Bob Elgar was a rewarding musical
experience for me. Bob is an extremely talented musician
who recognized my talents as a rebel music pioneer, and was
risque enough to collaborate with me and my odd songs. His
melodic expertise added so much to my music projects. Bob
has a great ear! He knew how to work our chemistry into something
extraordinary.During the reign of RGB & The Red Green
Blues Band, Elgar had the open mindedness to work well with
my odd compositions. He understood why I try so hard to define
my own unique stylings and compositions. He also had my shared
interest in creating music that was unique and original.
The joining of Elgars' jazz guitar with my folk rock and
blues variations has yielding some very enjoyable recordings.
I enjoyed working with Elgar the most of all because of these
qualities. His continuity and flow kept the wheels rolling
enabling me to strive toward more of a jam band world. I
have numerous recordings that were going along so well until
you here Mike Deichsel in the background going Whoa, Whoa!!!!Forcing
the recording to end, because he felt anything beyond 4 minutes
was unexceptable. Elgar and I had zero interest in fitting
a mold or conforming to American radio standards . There
were times when it was difficult to move into changes with
Elgars closed eye playing, but when I would listen to the
recordings you know why. Elgar is very knowlegeable about
complicated and long winded melodic structures, as he weaved
them around my relatively simple yet unique foundations.
As they happened, it sometimes wasn't easy to enact changes
I was heading toward, but the proof was in the pudding when
we listened back tothe recordings, Elgar always took the
music to interesting places. Now that I live on the west
coast, I miss playing guitar with Elgar. Bob now plays with
some very impressive cats and he has most certainly earned
that privelege with his dedication and endless hours of practice!
I hope that we will soon once again be able to re-unite and
record / gig.
