I've read in another thread that Rob is having some medical misadventures. Not wanting to hijack another topic, I figured I'd post this as I know a lot of folks here will want to wish him well. I don't know Rob personally, but he is one of the earliest people who influenced my pursuit of Classic Banjo.

So here's hoping for positive things.

Thanks to those who have expressed concern about Rob MacKillop's condition. I encourage you to write to him directly through this forum or whatever address you may have for him. He will appreciate hearing well-wishes from you.

It is my understanding that Rob was one of the founding members of the Edinburgh Banjo Club, Scotland and was an active member here on the  BHO & YouTube. I wish him well in his recovery.

Haven't heard from Rob in a while. I hope he's soon out of his medical misadventures and back to full health.

Rob sent out an update yesterday. The prognosis is not great but he will be undergoing treatment and has hopes of stabilizing his condition. He said it took all the energy he had just to write a few short paragraphs, but he would appreciate hearing from people. Write to him directly through his contact information on his BHO page.

I've emailed Rob since hearing that he is unwell. I'm not expecting a reply as his energy isn't up to it, I just hope he's ok. I'm not a facebook user so I just want to ask if anyone has heard an update via social media?

I think his condition is always something that will be managed, not cured.
