Bobby Furgo 2016 Interview About LC Tours and Last Days

Post by bigdee » Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:38 am

I just came across this Nov. 2016 interview with Bobby Furgo who, as most know, was a part of LC's band in 1988 and 1993. I don't remember reading this piece when it was first published and didn't find any mention of it on here either so I figured I'd share a link to it. Some interesting thoughts from Bob about his time with LC in 1988 and 1993. Also of note is that he mentions he remained close to LC in the final years of his life and was one of the very few LC called in to visit him at home in the final months of his life. He also said he recorded with him in early 2016. I'm wondering if he was originally suppose to play the violin parts on "You Want it Darker" that was credited to David Davidson on the final released versions of the songs on the album? Or if maybe there were other songs recorded during these sessions with Bob on them that didn't make the final cut when the album was put together? Anyway here is the link to the interview: ... bby-furgo/
