Ever since 1992, Robert Wayne Birch, or Bob Birch, had been playing bass for Elton John, even lending his talents on Candle in the Wind.
But according to police, Robert was found dead around the corner from his house Wednesday morning.
It seems as if he shot himself in the head, and no signs of drug use were found. There was no suicide note.
So sad!! We're sending love to his friends and family.
He had also performed with Cher, The Backstreet Boys, and The Spice Girls! Such a talented man!
