News - Bob Siebenberg - Supertramp drummer


October 2016

Hello everyone,

Well, it’s been a fairly busy couple of months for me…

The band I play in with Jesse has been playing regularly and in a great variety of venues. We do quite a few fundraising shows among them being ‘Save The Wave’, a fantastic organization that puts a focus on activity that will spoil coastline use all over the world. They raise money to fight developers being able to build resorts on otherwise pristine surfing locations. They’ve just been able to stop just such a thing happening in Ecuador. We also played for a group called ‘Forest Watch’, an organization that helps protect and maintain the forests in California. It’s satisfying to be around so many like minded people.

I’ve not heard much about Rick’s health recently but I have been told he is in remission and getting stronger every day. Great news. I miss him very much. John has also had a mishap whilst riding his bike. He was attacked by a neighbor’s dog and suffered a very nasty bite to the leg. Drop him a line and wish him well.

I continue to coach baseball here in my hometown and stay very busy working on the field and coaching a summer ball program. These kids are great and it keeps me young. I owe them a lot. I love my town.

When time allows I escape to Mexico for some hammock time and surf the days away. It is beautiful there and I always feel blessed to have this hideaway. Just me and the Mrs.

Please don’t forget that my album is available. I hope you give it a listen and check out the liner notes and photos. It’s a pretty personal record and I am very proud of it.

Some of you may have heard that I have been writing a book. It’s about my life in and out of Supertramp. It’s just coming out of its editing stage and will become available when appropriate. It is not a tell all dirty laundry sort of affair. It is an account of my journey from being a kid born in Glendale, California and how my path led me to London, England and back to California. Raising children and watching my house burn down.

It’s full of great stories and an honest look at life in Supertramp thru my eyes. I think it’s a fascinating look at what happens along the way to someone like me. How I got here from there. Being in my first band at 11 years old playing Surf music and Motown all pre-Beatle. The Hollywood Sunset Strip scene in the 60’s. Vietnam, Drug Culture, Surf and Music. Possibilities opening up because of the arrival on TV of the Beatles. Growing up with Scott Gorham and our adventures and eventual disenchantment with Los Angeles and moving to London, the land of my musical heroes.

The story of eventually hooking up with two guys who didn’t have two nickels to rub together and all of us taking that beautiful ride. Some of the situations you find yourself in and ‘how did I get here?’ Flying out of cities after a show and looking down at enormous traffic jams caused by YOU AND YOUR BAND. Some insight on how our songs came to be and a look at the long process of them getting to your turntable. The work it takes to promote and the atmosphere of touring in the 70’s and beyond and how things changed internally and externally. My thoughts on drumming and my relationships with the guys.

The 70’s was a unique time in music and we were certainly in the thick of it. A great cast of characters taking great music around the world.



June 2016

Hello all... Apologies again for the delay in writing something, but I’ve really been flying around. Let’s start with the baseball season. Our team did very well this year. We are a young team of very talented players. We had three players chosen to the All League First Team, two freshman and a sophomore.


December 2015

Hello everyone... I am very pleased that many fans are enjoying my new album. I am especially pleased that they are recognizing the influences that have mattered to me for so long. I do continue to write songs and enjoy the process as much as I always have. I take my time and work on things when I feel like it.


August 2015

Hello all... I will assume we all know that it is true that the Supertramp Tour has been cancelled. The reason that has been reported is true: Rick is in ill health and must focus on getting well. My prayers are with Rick and Sue that Rick is a great responder to treatment and we all get the result we hope for.


February 2015

Hello everyone... I guess the big news in my life right now is that my son Jesse is expecting his first child at the end of this month. I think he should name him after me, don’t you? Besides that, I have returned to coaching baseball. I am the new Head Varsity Baseball Coach at Yosemite High School.


September 2014

Hello everyone... Sorry for the time away. I’ve had a busy summer with lots of travel. I spent most of the summer in Mexico and watched two hurricanes come thru. Lots of wild weather and monsoon type rain. I love that kind of weather.


June 2014

Hello all... I just came back from a little visit with my pal Scott Gorham. I tagged along and saw three gigs in three days from Fresno, thru Los Angeles and onto San Juan Capistrano while they were on tour. Some of you may know he has been in Thin Lizzy since about 1975.


April 2014

Hello all... Not much to report, but thank you for the interest in what’s going on. I have finished ‘The Glendale River’ and am just waiting for the mixes to be finished. Jason Mariani is doing them at Jesse’s Brotheryn Studios where he is partners with Jason and Todd Hannigan.


December 2013

Hello everyone... Time for an update. I know I’m always overdue, and Abel bugs me until I do it (thanks, Abel). Well, let’s see… I’ll start with the success of the ‘Paris’ DVD. It reached the status of platinum in France and is closing in on achieving similar rewards in many different places.
