He now lives in Austin, Texas as the "King of Diesel-billy" with his twangy guitar and truck driving tunes. You'll hear a classic 8-minute version of "Hot Rod Lincoln" and some music by some of his favorites like Bob Dylan, Mike Bloomfield and Red Simpson. Robert also played some party tunes such as "Saturday Night Fish Fry."
