It is said that David Briggs had recommended Bobby to Elvis. After his time with Elvis he became famous with fans of 'Ween' for being their bandleader with his own 'Shit Creek Boys'. Today Bobby is still very much active as a session player and is vice president of the Nashville branch of RMA (Recording Musicians Association).

From April of 1976 Elvis wanted to have two sets of keyboards in his band. This was because he wanted a bigger and better sound. Hence the reason behind piano and electric piano.
