Rest In Peace, Bob Brozman!

Yesterday, another giant of resophonic guitar left us at age of 59 – Bob Brozman. All participating will certainly remember his energetic concerts at Dobrofest in Trnava, or his performances with Funny Fellows ibid. But Bob was much more. His enthusiasm for resonator instruments, the music associated with them, and their history was boundless. He was a tireless promoter of resophonic guitars, intensely interested in music of different cultures and has great merit, that people who’d never saw a resophonic guitar before, started to like it. I remember very well, with what enthusiasm he congratulated me to the opening of the class of  Dobro Guitar at Trnava’s School of Arts and how excited he was about that idea. I appreciate that I knew him, that I had the opportunity to play with him and learn from him. There left a precious man, friend of John  Dopyera itself and a great, great musician. RIP Bob!
