Bob Andy – Dies Aged 75
Written by Beres on 11/10/2020
Bob Andy around as long as I can remember in my life. As a school boy “Young Gifted & Black” was a song that played all around me at home & school. We at Spencer Park had an art teacher who wanted to engage with us . She allowed us to bring records to class and one of them was Bob & Marcia. Music was my only love, my bedside cabinet was made at woodwork, marked out of ten and then no longer than a day or two it was turned into a speaker cabinet. I was not so alert to singers in a deep way as an 8 year old but I knew the songs and as I started to collect music I learned more about the singers and Bob Andy was certainly one of them. He sang under other names as I found out but his voice was unmistakeable.
Alas Bob has left this world and now through the gates of Zion leaving behind a huge wonderful catalogue of beautiful music. RIEP Bob Andy we will never forget you
