"They were from the valley, and so was I; it was inspiring to know that if these guys could do it, anyone could do it".When Pete left Bad Religion in 1991 Bobby was just hanging around LA playing in various bands, according to Greg:
"He was wasting away in this terribly abusive band called Two Free Stooges, it was a shame (...) he's such a great drummer."Bobby grew up listening to glam rock (Bowie, Sweet, Slade and the Bay City Rollers). One weekend, he saw The Ramones on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert. Soon after, for his twelfth birthday, his sister bought him The Ramones' eponymous debut album and Rocket To Russia, and his fate was sealed.
"During the last legs of that tour, we also witnessed the last legs of one of the great punk drummers, Bobby Schayer. As you might have read in the news wires, Bobby sustained a career-ending progressive injury to his shoulder that finally sidelined him for good a couple weeks ago. We all miss him, and we have received hundreds of emails and letters wishing him well and hoping that his life will still prosper despite the inability to play drums. Thanks to all of you who wished him well during this difficult time."Bobby Schayer was replaced by Brooks Wackerman.
