Thank you for all of the candid discussions of Robert Crumb and his current life.

I don't have any old recordings of anything, but I do love listening to old-time radio shows whenever they are on, especially on one of my restored radios from the period, and they are a tremendous window on the times and places where they were created. And yes, I too want to be able to sample some of the titles from his music collection.

Also, do you have any ideas when Robert might again be back in the USA, perhaps including another stop or two here in Wisconsin?

Mike

He often comes to the US once a year or so. He has family in Minnesota but with his 2nd grandchild due in Dec and Robert's dislike of flying, there is a good chance that his US visits may begin to decrease in the near future....on the other hand, he's going to Australia for about 10 days in mid-August so who knows? I'm hoping he'll find someone to guide him to some great old Indonesian 78's while he's down there!

I just saw the film "Crumb" and was very much struck that Robert and both of his brothers displayed many autistic traits. It was glaringly obvious. One brother (Charles, who committed suicide a year after the filming) never left home after high school but was quite brilliant and well spoken. The other brother was a hermit living in San Fransisco. All the brother were shunned by society except Robert, once he became famous. I listened to the commentary provided with the DVD and the commentators kept saying, "I don't know how they could be so brilliant but so messed up." It was very obvious to me.

Where did you see "Crumb" at or did you buy the DVD? How can I see that movie?

If you PM her, she might get an email notification.

^^^I will try that but I fear that the same thing that chased others away from here did to her also.

I wasn't aware that anything had happened at WP to chase members away. It must have happened during my absence.
