Bobby Doyle Revisited

26 Jul

A while back, I wrote a post about Bobby Doyle, a singer I discovered while watching a documentary. He was an amazing singer, but I couldn’t find much information about him.bobby Doyle Drawing

A few days ago, one of his friends found that post, read it and commented on it. He left a great link to Bobby Doyle’s obituary and remembrance page. People are still leaving messages almost a decade after his death. That is a true testament about someone’s life.

His friend also said that he is working with Bobby Doyle’s family to make a film about the singer’s life. I hope they are successful with this project because this is someone who people need to know about. He was a true talent and, from everything I have read, a beloved member of his community.

    Dear Sir.

    I wrote an RIP type post about Bobby Doyle, who definitely changed my musical perspective and blew my mind. 1969, Spring, “The Introductory Offer”. My radar inserted him forever, which led to finding the “Nine” or “Ten Songs” or whatever it was called, which was an ineffably beautiful follow up. and then any new work disappeared from my adolescence…I was stuck in Chicago for while after college, but never made it down to Texas, except to visit Thaddeus Lott in Houston as an education consultant–to learn from him. Alas, music was not on my mind. So, he ended his great days in Austin? What clubs?

    God, what a singer and piano player!

      Thank you for commenting, and thank you for the link to your article. It is a fitting tribute. I am lucky enough to have been immersed in Bobby’s world by a few of his friends. One of them is quoted in the article that I am linking. I think it will answer all of your questions.
