Bobb's Bio


Bobb Goldsteinn (AKA Bob Goldstein)—


Shortly after having been a co-writer of Woody Allen’s at a playhouse in the mountains (his first professional job), Bobb conceived of a unique fusion arrangement for a song he had written earlier just before entering high school, which he entitled “WASHINGTON SQUARE ワシントン広場の夜はふけて .” The arrangement of the instrumental – trademarked as ‘Folk-Dixie’ -- became the first of the limitless hyphenates that followed (like ‘Folk-Rock’ and its kin), opening up pop music to worlds of musical combinations that continue to be spliced together to this day.

Then Bobb took on the GoldeBriars from right after their first album through to the fabled, yet unreleased Third Album -- which he both co-wrote and co-produced. He next pioneered the entertainment of Disco Lighting with his ‘LightWorks,’ becoming, in the process, the first artist to mix, match and synch records together on two or more turntables at the same time. When the media asked him how to describe what he was doing with lights, screens, mirrored balls, movies and slides, Bobb coined a new term by calling it ‘multimedia.’

With Curt Boettcher, Bobb wrote what is considered to be ‘Lou Christie’s Lost Masterpiece’ – “CANTERBURY ROAD.” For Andy Warhol, Bobb wrote and produced the title soundtrack song to the last movie that Andy himself directed just before getting shot: Andy Warhol’s “LONESOME COWBOYS.” The Rolling Stones’ ‘Sticky Fingers’ album cover – signed by Andy -- was designed by Bobb, who later created the print teaser for the movie “CRUMB.” Currently, as Managing Partner of bOgO! Entertainment, Bobb is preparing his new Hollywood Musical for future presentation, hopefully, in Japan first.
