Leo Beattie was at the epicenter of the Detroit rock scene of the late 1960’s, early 1970’s. After leaving his parents house just a year or two prior, and narrowly missing the draft for Vietnam, his first professional job in the industry was as a roadie for the hard-hitting band, the MC5.
Join me as I take the stage with legendary Audio Engineer, Robert “Nite Bob” Czaykowski, and veteran Tour Manager Rich Nesin, as we take a look at two extraordinary careers in the music business spanning the last fifty years.
Both Rich and Nite Bob have deep roots in the industry that start against the backdrop of the late ‘60’s, early ‘70’s, and include such artists as Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, Steely Dan, Iggy Pop, Steel Pulse, New York Dolls, Rich Robinson, Kiss, Ace Frehley, and Blue Oyster Cult.
After nearly 45 years in the music industry it's safe to say that Robert "Nite Bob" Czaykowski does indeed deserve the legendary status that is usually bestowed upon him.
