A great Texan has passed away. Bob McLendon was the bass drummer in a new band in Ok. (Pipe Major Bruce Robertson) I was his teacher for the better part of a year. Bob was a very good student and was well on his way to being a great bass drummer. I will always remeber Bob as being the "old school" Marine. The last time I saw Bob was at the Tulsa Games. He got to watch his son(Angus) play in with a great group of guys but he got to watch his son play with a great pipe band. I will alwyas remeber the tears of joy on his face after the band walked off the field. Bob was a great Texan, a great bass drummer and the world has lost a great Marine.
