Imagine, a very young, remarkably talented guitarist from the outskirts of Philadelphia being plucked from a small nightclub and placed in huge arenas with some of the most famous musicians in the world. This is Bob Sabellico and the story is true. At 16 he was chosen to replace guitarist Randy Bachman in the Canadian band, “The Guess Who,” at the height of their international fame. This was to be only the beginning of a life long affair with the world of music.
He eventually left, “ The Guess Who” to start his own band and travel the country. Over the years, Bob gained experience and chops from his days as a road warrior. His exposure to varied styles of music gave him a unique perspective on his work, enabling him to experiment and mold his musical history into a sound and style all his own.

Fortunately for his listeners, he never put it down....
