    Member Bobbsy - some very sad news

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I heard from Simon, Bob Howes son that sadly he died yesterday. He went into hospital for a replacement knee in Australia where he lived, and was recovering nicely, when complications arose and he passed away unexpectedly. I've known Bob for a long time on another forum where we are both moderators and have often chatted from the UK with him and his wife Caer. My condolences go to his family. Always a fountain of knowledge and I'll miss his contributions.

    RIP Bobbsy. I liked you - you talked sense and you were a civilising influence in this place that is often a bit of a craphole.

    Bummer man....Just binge watched the first season of the resident...an dramatized inside look at the hospital industry and the decisions, problems and mistakes that due to the legal liability and reputation of both the hospital and doctors very often get covered up or "sugar coated" Oh yeah and the greed and God syndromes that co-exist are fostered within.

    Two sayings...the first from an actual doctor I met on a flight asking advice on picking the right doctors / hospitals... "Don't get sick" the last place you want to end up is in a hospital. Don't take elective surgeries lightly as shit can go wrong and get real in a heartbeat or the lack thereof in an instance....

    The other is..When they say Doctors are practicing medicine, they mean it....

    What a tragedy to go in for a damn knee replacement and dying from it... how the hell does that happen? Dang!


    God speed Bobbsy...you were one of the good ones here!

    Vale Bobbsy. As a newly minted Queenslander, retired and living in a town I have links to, I had many a nice chat with him. He was indeed a top bloke.

    Will be missed.

    Sucky news. My sister-in-law (same age as me) just had knee replacement surgery in Canada, and has been back to the emergency room twice because of it. I'll just hobble around on my old knees, thanks.

    Oh wow...I just saw this.
    Damn that sucks...to go like that without any expectation following what's considered a pretty basic procedure these days.
    I assume it was either infection or clots post-surgery.
    Nothing is guaranteed when you go in.

    I liked Bobbsy and most of his posts...we were kindred spirits when it came to old-school audio and recording perspectives.

    Funny...he didn't post regularly, and would sometimes stay away for weeks...so I never wondered where he's been lately.
    Damn...Bobbsy was a good guy...now gone to the studio in the sky.
