Remembering Paul Cobb
A year ago today the youngest son of my dear friends, Jill and Don Cobb, was accidentally and tragically killed by a train. He was only 24 years old.
Paul was an accomplished artist, musician, and skilled outdoorsman. He was a quiet, humble and sensitive free-spirit who lived a life of integrity. He played a number of musical instruments for two bands: Amo Joy and The Accordians.
When he died he left behind numerous unfinished musical ideas on tape, along with a sketchbooks of his remarkable artwork. For the past year Paul’s musical companions (with help from his family and friends) have been on a journey to honor his life and gifts. Their plan is to produce an album of his unfinished and unreleased songs on vinyl and cassette (Paul's preferred format). The project is nearing completion.
