 Message from Eddie Union  -- To all concerned. 

I'm letting you know that we lost a member of the Volumes. Our group member and brother, Robert Peterson was shot and killed in a home invasion, May 17th or 18th. His home had been broken into and car stolen numerous times. We begged him to move from that area. or get a dog or a gun. He has lived there since 1972, and didn't want to leave. Keep him and his family in your prayers. He will be greatly missed.    

Robert was a member of the group that played the Prestatyn Weekender a few years back. He was also a member of the Magnetics, including the time when the Volumes used that name for a short period.

Saddened and shocked to hear this at Palma Airport yesterday. A sickening end to a wonderful singer.

Very sad to hear. At least it was nice to read the article re their appearance at Prestatyn.

This latest passing in Detroit is particularly horrific. 

Bobby was part of the Magnetics group who gave us that awesome double sider on Bonnie - 'Lady In Green'/'Heart You're Made Of Stone'.

The music lives on Bobby - RIP.
