My friend Bobby “The Rose” Biddle IV was taken by Lady Death last week and I will miss him. He was a good man, a loving husband, and dear friend. His passing was tragic and sudden and my heart goes out to his his wife and unborn child. To his mother, father, and his siblings. (If you knew him or knew of him, please honor his memory and post any memories, photos, art, or music that you may have on his Facebook Page.)
Bobby was an amazing young man; humble, happy, and possessed with the search for knowledge. He believed in nurturing the true potential of humanity and at every opportunity he touched the the lives of so many people. I am grieved by his lost and at the same time happy his memory will live on in his family and friends and hopeful that his dreams will come true for this planet. He was truly special.
I remember him. Bobby “The Rose” believed in me and my music so much that he recorded my first song MySoulBeing in 2001 in his dorm room in Vogelweh Air Station, Germany with studio equipment he’d bought using his US Air Force bonus check. It was a soul, jazz album of all original music instrumentation for. didn’t have much money to pay him but I was so humbled because he told me he was honored to be the guy who captured my sound and helped me realize how important it was to share it with the world.
Bobby, may the gods preserve the greatness of your spirit for all time.
Follow the light…
