Don't want people panicking. Bobby was hurt in the car accident, but was
allowed home the same day as the accident. He broke his Knee and Sternum (chest
bone) which of course makes holding an accordian difficult to say the least.
I am sure he would appreciate cards......well wishes etc.......
Hopefully he'll be back playing before too long.
As Sylvia said, he was missed in DC, but the band did a great job.
