He is 81-year-old Bob Wood and he plays an electric guitar like you’ve never heard a man of his age play before. He is from Nashville TN.
Bob has been a musician for a very long time. Until recently not much was known about him. He has nine children, one of whom is Melanie Wood Moody. She says her dad was signed as a regular performer at Jamboree USA in Wheeling WV in 1970 and performed for them for ten years. He loves to entertain and his skills with a guitar are still as sharp as ever.
Recently when he walked into a British Audio music store in Nashville and picked up an electric guitar, he started playing. Everyone in the store was stunned at what was coming from this 81 year old in a plaid shirt with white hair. That is when this video of him went viral and made him a viral sensation.
The music is fantastic. I have always been a huge fan of the guitar. When I came across this gentleman playing I was in heaven. Bob likes to play jazz and country bop, and he does an amazing job too.
In 1975 and 1976, he was awarded Entertainer of the Year by Eastern States Country Music Inc. In 2007, Bob was inducted into The Southern Legends Country Music Hall of Fame. He has several albums, including Bob Wood Plays It Cool.
