Musician

Buzz Brooks

Born:

Buzz is a kind of a wacky dude who believes that "He who dies having laughed the most, wins." Bob Brooks acquired the nickname "Buzz" when, in his first band, circa 1967, he developed a reputation as a type-A, high-energy sort of fellow. Between the ages of 11 and 13, Buzz took piano lessons, and quit. Fortunately the piano teacher taught some ear training and theory, so that when an older friend started spinning 45s from the Stax and Motown labels, Buzz was able to decipher the chords. This led to a seven-year stint with an R & B show band called "300 Years", so named because they felt that it had taken 300 years here in the U.S
