In 1997 when the Internet was young an American woman set up a website as a gift to a bones-playing father - what else to do you give to a person who doesn't want anything?

In May 1998 Bob Bolton started a thread Dem Bones on the two year old American-based Mudcat Cafe site asking about bones, & sometime later sent his biography to the site.

Steve Wixon from the Rhythm Bones Society recently visited Sydney & a group of players gathered to meet him. Bob was unable to be there as were several out-of-Sydney members.
