Bob Log III is a one-man-band slide guitar party. A perverse product of the
Arizona desert, Bob Log III has been diligently traveling the globe since 1996,
showcasing his incomparable talents and developing a devoted following along the
way. A whirlwind of dexterous limbs and digits, this superstar sonic showman has
to be seen to be believed.
Clad in his cannonball man, extra tight jumpsuit, and signature motorcycle helmet
with telephone/microphone attached, Bob Log III unfailingly sweats up a river
while kicking on a kick drum, stomping his homemade foot cymbal and playing
slide on an old archtop guitar. His endless pursuit for musical mayhem and a
downright party has seen his unique talents utilized for childrens birthday parties,
obscure beer barns, mammoth music festivals, and everything in between.
Yet, beyond these mesmerizing visuals, lies the true reason for Bob Logs
international cult status and superhero adoration. It is quite simply the guitar
playing - finger-picked lightning, sliding up and down, stopping when he wants to,
then starting again when he feels like it, all in a way that makes people move
uncontrollably, smile and reel.
TOM WAITS "And then theres this guy named Bob Log, you ever heard of him?
Hes this little kid nobody even knows how old he is wears a motorcycle
helmet and he has a microphone inside of it and he puts the glass over the front so
you cant see his face, and plays slide guitar. Its just the loudest strangest stuff
youve ever heard. You dont understand one word hes saying. I like people who
glue macaroni onto a piece of cardboard and paint it gold. Thats what I aspire to
POISON IVY (The Cramps) If you do that again, we are kicking you off the
R.L. BURNSIDE Sideshow, you hanging in there like a dirty shirt. I want you
playing with me tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that.
