High-energy French rock & rollers Little Bob Story came so close to proto-punk glory that
they could almost smell it. Uncompromisingly fronted by the man-mountain Bob Piazza,
but equally highlighted by the elegantly wasted scarecrow guitarist Guy George Gremy,
Little Bob Story effortlessly bridged the gulf between the hooligan R&B of Eddie & the Hot
Rods and the nihilistic adrenaline of all that was to follow. They were just a little too early,
a little too hairy (bassist Barbe Noire would have melted into the Grateful Dead), and a little
too French. Allmusic
Without mistake, one can only say what a legend Little Bob is regarding Rock'n'Roll History.
Neither success, glory, hits, airplay nor homage could ever testify enough of his contribution
to music. It all goes back to France's main northern port. A tough mother of a rain-battered
grey hole called Le Havre. Le Havre is the closest France ever gets to the look and feel of
Liverpool or New Jersey: oil terminals, super tankers, refineries, chemical plants, warehouses,
longshoremen, etc. Little Bob comes from here, and for those to whom such things matter,
Little Bob's story features all the right Rock & Roll ingredients. Bob can out mean-street
anyone.

LITTLE BOB: "One Story Vol. 2" cd 2000


“…Le Havre was a real discovery. A city marked by its strong working class past, its dockers and its old port. Musically speaking, Le Havre is the Memphis of France, and Little Bob the Elvis of French rock ‘n’ roll.”
Aki KAURISMÄKI

“Libero” is the song selected by Aki Kaurismäki for the soundtrack of his latest movie, "Le Havre", with Little Bob cast in his own role.
Check it !
