We are very sad to report the sudden death today of Bob Birch, Elton’s bass player and backing vocalist, in Los Angeles. Bob had been a member of the Elton John band since 1992, the longest-serving bassist in Elton’s touring band.
We send love and condolences to Michele Birch, and to their son, Jonathan.
An appreciation of Bob Birch will be published very soon.
