“You were one of the kindest men I ever met. You were such a gentleman the evening I had dinner with you. You are missed!
“Thanks for the hits...you left your mark here.
“Rest in peace, R.B.
“I was blessed with knowing RB for a very short time in Albuquerque, NM. I worked at a music shop and he would stop by every now and then. I remember how happy he was that he had just bought a Gibson Robot guitar. First I was star struck then that quickly waned to respect and admiration. RB had such a pleasant, easy and open disposition. In spanish we call it "tranquilo." Big smiles and fun conversation every time. I was bummed to learn of his death today.
“Remember what a staple that song was on WABC NY in 1969! Thanks for a wonderful memory! RIP RB! Condolences to your family, friends & fans! Joey.
“You will always hold a special place in our hearts my dear friend. You will be missed. We love you. The Klepper Family
“I remember that song as a little girl rest in peace
