Hey all - it just came to my attention that Robin Sylvester, Ratdog's bassist, has been hospitalized awaiting a kidney transplant. He's a great guy whom I've had the pleasure of performing with a couple of times. Send him your healing energy. ... ster-fund/

Very sorry to hear of this!

I had the pleasure of meeting him and sitting in for a few songs when he came through PDX with Cast Of Clowns over Labor Day weekend. As I recall then, he was not feeling 100%, but you couldn't tell from the way he rocked that '62 Precision! Very gracious fellow and I wish him the best.

Wow, thoughts are with him! I love Robin's playing. I think that Ratdog's high water mark as a band was with Robin (and I am a big Wasserman fan, but Robin brought the Rock and Roll bottom to the proceedings). I was wondering why he wasnt at the TRI deal.
