Beatle Bob and Me - Caught on Film



I'm famous. Sharing the screen with Jello Biafra, Mojo Nixon, and the legendary Beatle Bob!

A friend recently sent me a link to www.myspace.com/bb_rocks. That's the MySpace home of director Jenni Sterling and Arammana Productions, which is producing an indie documentary called "Superfan: The Lies, Life and Legend of Beatle Bob."

I clicked the play button on the embedded video player, and lo and behold, there I was -- talking about Beatle Bob. I'm the first voice you hear on the trailer.

(Not sure who Beatle Bob is? Click here to find out.)

I met Jenni and a camera guy at a local music store about a year ago and was interviewed for the documentary. Hadn't heard much about it since, until I was sent the link. Very cool.

Later in the clip, you hear former Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra, right before they return to a shot of me. Another classic scene is a rant by Mojo Nixon near the end.

Again, you can watch it at www.myspace.com/bb_rocks. Note: You may have to download the latest version of Flash to have the audio and video work together.

See you on the red carpet :-)

-Bob

Beatle Bob is a really great guy. We met him at our show at The Way Out Club the first time we played in St. Louis and he was incredibly supportive and really nice. We didn't realize at the time that we were hanging out with a St. Louis legend!

This is great. First met Bob about 10 years ago at SXSW and have seen him everywhere since...including my own music conferences, which was a great compliment.

If you want to see another great documentary which has some really interesting "superfans," check out "Tribute." Not sure if it's available on DVD as I know they had licensing issues because of all the music, but I know it's at various film festivals and also on Showtime.
