What can you say about Rob Hubbard. Well where would we be now if it wasn't for him. Rob inspired countless composers and arrangers. He turned the modest sid chip into a orchestra, like which was never heard before. Rob now works on the Back In Time CD's. You'll be able to hear his WAR on the BIT 3 album. Also coming on a future Bit album is a re-work of a tune that no-one has heard before. Exciting! you bet!
