Robbie Steinhardt was a singer/songwriter and violinist extraordinaire for the rock group Kansas. He was a friend of mine and he passed away this week.
About 8 years ago I asked Robbie if he had heard of Joe Bonnamassa. He had heard of him but never his music. I made him a cd of 7-8 Joe songs. He said he listened to it every day for at least a year.
My condolences, Bob, on the loss of your friend Rob Steinhardt. He was extremely talented and the “thing” that made Kansas stand out from most other rock bands on the 70’s. I still recall his wonderful soloing whereas he would play something, it went on a long delay/echo, and he would play along with what he had just played, and the result was an absolutely incredible interlude during the band’s performance…
Again, my condolences, and may he rest in peace.
