I'm just happy to be here...

     Bob. Guadalajara. Epic.
     Here is Mexico Operative, esteemed guest blogger and my all-'round fabulous nephew Charles to expound on His Bobness:
     
He walks onto stage looking like he just walked out of the Civil War. And walks off like he's back to it. Maybe in the final shot, he'll win the war...

Bob and his band are some motherf$&@*! He even looks slightly evil, dressed all in black, all 5'5" of him. He and his Band.  Bob may be 66, but his combination of Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan makes him badder than I'll ever be.

Bob's Mexican-male-stripper-promoter Sergio Mayer may not be well liked in Mexico, but the whiz kid did bring Bob to Mexico for the first time since 1991. And the review of one John "Tio Loco" Conyne will be in this week's edition of  "El Publico," Guadalajara's main daily.

Some might wonder how a non-Spanish speaking man may have charmed a Mexican girl reporter.  How could they have persuaded you? I think he suckered her in when he said that "Bob's voice sounds like life."  The reporter almost cried when he said that, and she was hooked...

I, too, am hooked. Bob growled while his band backed up his boasts.  The best news is that Bob is putting Mexican bookends on his Latin American tour: Zacatecas Plaza, March 25th, 4 hours from Guadalajara, free concert. Bob twice in 23 days is something to aspire to. I will be there.

And I will be buying "El Publico" every day until John Conyne's review is there...

Glad you made it to the show John, and props to Charles for the post! Two guest bloggers on Conyne blogs in a week's time, when will it end?
