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.

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."
