Bob Schneider's Five Favorite Albums Of All Time

It's been said that if you have lived in Texas for at least a decade and you haven't at least been in the vicinity of a Bob Schneider show, you are probably lying. Our introduction to Schneider was kind of heartbreaking, but that's another story for another blog, or maybe we've already told that one. If we did, Google that shit.

Anyhow, the man has been on a Houston tear as of late. He was just at McGonigel's Mucky Duck about a month ago in February, and will be there again on April 7. Like we said, he's not scarce, and each set is different than the last time you saw him, without fail. We spoke with him just this past November, pinning him down for a quick 30-second interview.

Friday, Schneider comes to House of Blues' main room, plugging in after The Daily Show's John Oliver throws down a comedy set. From what we have heard, Schneider could probably do a night of stand-up himself, considering his touring stories and personal life. He also has a debilitating pretty-lady fetish.

As our own William Michael Smith once put it, "He's survived a childhood in Munich, Germany, Sandra Bullock, drugs and spells as a sensitive singer-songwriter and a faux rapper."

We asked the man what his five favorite albums are, in particular order. He gets bonus points from Rocks Off for appreciating Randy Newman, not for just his soundtrack work, but for his devastating drinking songs.

Great choices overall, and what I apprecaite about Bob's music is that he's willing to take risks and doesn't stay pidgeonholed into one genre. What I do not like is his womanizing, like cheating on his wife with some bimbo 21-year-old. Grow up, have a son.


I've never cared for anything Bob Schneider has done musically. If he hadn't pimped his one-time relationship with Sandra Bullock so hard, he would have (and should have) faded back into obscurity years ago. Any other Austin people remember the BMW she bought him? He still getting mileage out of it, as well?

That said, I do like his album choices.


You are a self important and opinionated jerk that likes to read your own shallow words... Bob has more depth and musical skill in his last toenail clipping than you've had in a lifetime.


wow! don't be a hater! bob and his music are awesome!!!


Bob is one badass MF'er!!! That man is mulit talented & the only reason he is not as well known as big name bands is because...he doesn't want to sell out like most others! W/ that said, keep your negative comments to yourself & leave Bob alone! One of the best things to come out of Austin & Austin loves him!!!


Bob has more talent then most musical artist who are "pimped" by the corporates. To bad you can't recognize that. Perhaps a little jealousy on your behalf? The work this man has done to help other musicians is something Bullock couldn't do in a lifetime!

Go Bob!

btw, I do agree with your assessment on his album selection as well.
