…guitarist in the first New G Band. Bemo talked about Rod in the last regular rehearsal as well as both of the virtual rehearsals. Rod is an example of someone close to our New G community who died due to the Corona virus.
Bemo talks about Rod toward the beginning of this video – starting at the -30:22 mark. Bemo mentioned that that trio went on to form a band called Crossroads and that Rod may have also recorded an album. Bemo also remembers hearing that Rod was talked about as the next “Kenny” – later confirmed to be Kenny Loggins.
Most recently, Rod was a staple of the Vail, Colorado, area (be sure to read the articles and comments about Rod’s popularity).
Here is a picture of Rod – he is standing in the back.
