I’m Bob Mayo. Not the Bob Mayo who played with Peter Frampton.
I was in a heavy metal band called Wargasm from 1985 to 1995. We released 3 albums and 1 ep (all of which are now out-of-print), had a video on MTv, toured Europe 3 times and select parts of the US twice, and had a great time doing it. I’m the guy on the right, below.
I wrote 50 songs between June of ’06 to June of ’07. I chose the best 25 and recorded 2 albums under the fictitous band name Robot Monster Army. I played most of the guitars and bass, and several good friends supplied the drums, vocals, and additional guitars. Both albums are available on iTunes; here’s a link to the Bandcamp page:
Basically everything that I was into when I was 12 is just as important to me now as it was then: I’m a silver age Marvel Comics nerd; I’m a huge fan of the Toho Godzilla flicks; I like the James Bond novels better than the movies; I’m a hardcore Bruins fan. I grew up in suburban Boston, where I now reside with my wife and son. I’ve been called an opinionated bastard, and worse.
I like music and I like to write. I hope you like reading what I write about music. It’s as simple as that.
