Music: Bob Log III

If Bob Log III didn’t exist, no one would invent him because no one is bat-shit crazy enough to think his psychotronic one-man-band concept could actually work.

If Bob Log III didn’t exist, no one would invent him because no one is bat-shit crazy enough to think his psychotronic one-man-band concept could actually work. 


Born Robert Logan Reynolds III in Chicago, Log spent his Arizona childhood absorbing the sounds of AC/DC, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Screaming Jay Hawkins and Hasil Adkins, which led him to acquire his first guitar at age 11. Five years later, the Delta Blues of Mississippi Fred McDowell inspired Log to shift to slide guitar and his die was cast. 

To date, Log has dropped five studio albums and one exquisite concert doc, Live!!! Aloha from Japan. For a limited time through Log’s website (boblog111.com), a mere $200 (plus shipping) and a photo of a butt (yours or someone else’s, clothed or jaybird naked) will get you a customized song about the pictured rump, immortalized on five CDs and a download. And this is how Log reinforces his unironic tag line: “One Man Band Guitar Party Dance Mess.”
