It's amazing that Bob has never received the recognition he deserved. A fantastic rock and roll guitarist. Saw the Mats on the Let it Be Tour and they were incredible. Sloppy yes! but a lot of fun. Bob was throwing beers out to people in the crowd and having a great time. He is surely missed!

Good point. Paul Westerberg gets most of the credit but The Mats would not have been the same without Bob Stinson's influence.
