The great,great,great grandson of classical composer Robert Schumann, Robby,a self taught musician,started his musical career off in the State of Arizona. Robby played guitar for the Phx. Based 'Killing Crew' a band that was backed by the now defunked national sydicated radio station Z-Rock. After the backing was gone Robby moved to California to pursue his musical aspirations and within one year was hand picked to play guitar on the 'War of Words' tour for 'Judas Priest' frontman 'Rob Halford' in his band 'Fight'. Robby has also done studio work for 'Eddie Money' demoing songs for the 'Ever Ready Eddie' album. Robby has also played one off shows with 'Spencer Davis' in the Legends Allstar Band featuring 'Alex Ligertwood' (Carlos Santana) and 'Carmine Appice' (Rod Stuart,Vanilla Fudge) and also for George Lynch (Lynch Mob) both opening the show and returning on stage to back George. Robby played guitar for a popular L.A. band 'Treason' which featured 'Magic Moreno' (Eric Clapton,David Lee Roth,Phil Collins,Barbara Striesand,Aretha Franklin) and Double bass king 'Glenn Noize'. Robby released a solo record in '97' (out of print 5000 copies) which featured Neil Turbin (Anthrax) and Barry Sparks (Ted Nugent,Michael Schenker,Yngwie Malmsteen,Uli Jon Roth,Scorpions). After Treason and the first solo release Robby teamed up with Bernie Corrigan and formed the band 'Gillians Crush'. They worked with two number one hit song writers in Jake Hooker (Joan Jett,'I love Rock n Roll') and Curt Cuomo (Kiss,Phyco Circus). Gillians Crush had a variety of rythm sections having guys who played in Berlin,Robbie Krieger,Rick SpringField,Meridith Brooks,Peter Gabriel and Lita Ford.The band was corted by several industry heavy weights but due to being locked up too tight in a bad producer contract and the niativity of Robby and Bernie (for signing a horrible producer agreement) the band had no choice but to dis-band. Robby currently plays in the band 'DigJelly'. DigJelly has just released a new CD that was produced and recorded on Robby's protools HD3 home studio system. DigJelly is currently between labels. The band has toured the country opening for 'Veruca Salt' and Interscopes 'Love Makers'. You can still catch DigJelly on tour thru CA. AZ. ^#^and NV. Robby's new CD,which has been complete for a few years, was slated for a label release but negotiations fell short. The CD has Robby producing and track engineering along with all the guitar playing,singing and writing (except 2 tracks Co-written with Bernie Corrigan). All drums were played by Joey Felix of DigJelly except one track played by Gunter Fliszar a.k.a. Dikkie (Bruce Dickenson,Decca Tree). Robby plays bass on 2 tracks and Airain Balen of DigJelly plays on 1 and the rest of the bass is played by the brilliant playing of 'Javi Bojorquez (Joan Sebastian).The CD was mixed and mastered by Evan Rodniche (Cage9, Powerman 5000).
