Rob Drabkin. His hair is a playful cross between The Simpsons Sideshow Bob character and Jimi Hendrix. His music? Imagine a jazzy improv by Dave Matthews where he invites Paul Simon to join him onstage. Rob Drabkin is a native of Denver, CO. His Mom had him take piano lessons at 5. That only lasted for a few months. At 11, Rob got lucky and scored an electric guitar from his parents. He and his older sister would sneak Metallica and Guns N' Roses cassettes into the house. They loved listening to this forbidden music and Rob learned all of the guitar parts on both cassettes note for note.
