Robert Nix

Wow – Losing Robert was just too much after losing Chris – and of course they knew each other!  It’s a small world – especially in the Music Business!

I had met Allison – Roberts Wife – back when I used to play the Circuit out of Oxford, MS when in College, during my TOURING DAYS – and then while in Law School.   She used to come see me play – but I had NO IDEA that she could sing so well.  

So one day – Robert Nix walks into my office – and we hit off immediately!  I remember him coming over to the house and then saying – “I’ve never met an attorney that could play and write like you can!”  As music was our BOND first – and then I was his attorney for a long time.  

Robert was one of the most upbeat people you could ever meet – no matter how badly things were going when he was sick – he was still saying “let’s get something goin’ and let’s Bite the ____ out of the MOON! ”  And he had so many other ONE LINERS – he was GREAT at them!

Robert and I got to spend a LOT of time together and having him come play drums at my Studio was always a huge TREAT!  But just knowing Robert you couldn’t help but just LOVE Him for who he was – as he was such an AWESOME GUY – I was just blown away when I heard he had passed away – and I immediately made quick plans to go to the Funeral – as I would NOT have missed that for the WORLD!  I will miss him but I know he’s still Rockin’ in a GREAT BAND along with all the other of my friends who’ve passed – it’s a tough time for me – as I’ve lost too many friends as of late – but I’m going to keep on Rockin’ while I still can!  As that’s what they would want me to do! 

I love you ROBERT! You’ll always be in my heart and mind!
