In Memory of

Bobby George

The above photo is of the original line-up of ‘Leader Sound’, which later became ‘Crystal Ship.’  The guy with the tambourine is Brian Wilson, who actually played keyboard.

The guitar player is the late Bobby George who was quite the character (the stories I could tell!).

All the other members are alive and well in various locations in CANADA.  The only one still playing (non-stop since the day!) is bass player Dan Richard (Ri-shard).  Dan and I, as well as Brian Wilson and I, are still in touch to this day; but I haven’t seen Rod in years.
