Obligatory Bob & Ray reference of the week

Just thought I’d note down an interesting article (yes, as distinct from the other seventeen thousand or so I’ve found. Sheesh) from a Cape Cod local, reprinted as a blog post. Does a really nice job of putting the duo’s artistic legacy into perspective – I was particularly charmed by the notion of George Carlin obsessively buying up every recording he could find – besides elaborating a bit further on the new DVD.

It also contains a mini-interview with Bob himself, including a poignant admission that dealing with his partner’s death was ‘really difficult’. Apparently Ray was on dialysis for a decade or so prior, but ‘never complained’ and the act continued on without missing a beat for seven-eight of those years. Yikes. I don’t know whether to applaud or be completely horrified.
