I just want to thank you for not putting the false information on your site. You did a good job of not trying to tell Bobby's story a.k.a Ben. A lot of magazine writers are reporting that the album producer found him. Correction me and my father found him in a hole in the wall then we started up a band called the Black and Blues Band with Ben as the lead singer which has became very succsesful. Thanks for bieng ligit
