Besides being a professional musician, Bob is also a professional glass cutter.  When he decided to take a break from the music business after the Freddi-Henchi Band, he started his own glass company called Reddi Glass.  Here are some of the glass works of art he has created:

Below are pictures of Bob's glasswork that is displayed at the Denver Broncos new football stadium, Invesco Field.  The bottom picture shows a worker cleaning the glass and puts the size of the helmet into perspective.

 

 

 

 

Below is Bob's most recent work of glass art.  It is the front end of a 1953 Cadillac that was completed around the first of the year (2003).   Very nice!

 

     IN 1975 WHEN I WAS PLAYING WITH THE FREDDI-HENCHI BAND, DURING WEEKS OFF AND BREAKS IN THE SCHEDULE, I STARTED WORKING IN OUR BASS PLAYER'S FAMILY GLASS BUSINESS TO SUPPLEMENT MY INCOME.  OF COURSE I WAS SCARED TO DEATH I WAS GOING TO CUT OFF MY HAND OR FINGERS AND NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY MUSIC.  EVENTUALLY I BECAME MORE COMFORTABLE AROUND GLASS AND ACTUALLY STARTED ENJOYING IT.

      WHEN THE TIME CAME THAT I WAS SO BURNT OUT ON MUSIC I GOT SICK JUST LOOKING AT MY GUITAR, I FELL BACK ON THE GLASS AND STARTED MY OWN COMPANY; REDDI GLASS COMPANY.  AFTER A GREAT START AND SOME GOOD YEARS FINANCIALLY, I WAS RIPPED OFF BY AN UNSCRUPULOUS CONTRACTOR AND FORCED TO FILE BANKRUPTCY.

     I STARTED ANOTHER COMPANY; PROFESSIONAL GLASS SERVICES. THIS TIME I FOCUSED ON SMALL JOBS AND APARTMENT BUILDING MAINTENANCE ETC, SO THAT IF I GOT STIFFED ON A JOB IT WOULDN'T TAKE ME DOWN.

     I WAS ASKED TO DO SOME MIRROR WORK AT MILE HIGH STADIUM AND SUGGESTED SOME FOOTBALL AND HELMET SHAPED MIRRORS. I KNEW THOSE ACID TRIPS AND MY TECHNICOLOR IMAGINATION WOULD COME IN HANDY SOME DAY. I STARTED MAKING MIRROR GUITARS, KEYBOARDS, ELEPHANTS, CACTUSES, CHRISTMAS TREES, HELL YOU NAME IT. IT WAS DEFINITELY MORE FUN AND CREATIVE THAN FIXING A WINDOW.

I SOON GOT THE HOTS FOR MUSIC AGAIN, AND DID NOT HAVE TIME FOR THE GLASS BUSINESS. I LET PROFESSIONAL GLASS SERVICES DIE A DIGNIFIED DEATH, AND FOCUSED ON PLAYING, RECORDING, AND WRITING.    B.Y.
