Bob Griffin

Bob Griffin is a Milwaukee rock bassist who has avoided some, but not all, of the confusion associated with a common name by preferring the shorter, friendlier Bob to Robert; other players with the same name, many of them rockers, seem to prefer formality. These include the Robert Griffin from Cleveland whose rock career began at approximately 13 and the New Orleans jazz pianist who has recorded several albums fronting a trio. The Milwaukee bassist is best known for playing with the BoDeans, a group that evolved out of a collaboration between Wisconsin high-school students in the first half of the '80s.
