Sincere condolences to the Whalen Family..I have many fond memories of time spent with Bobby. He was quite a unique person, a world class practical joker, who loved a laugh. We always joked about putting a band together--i recall that he wanted to name the band "Squash."
And for the record--Bobby was the greatest drummer I ever knew!
