Bob Klose

From Academic Kids

Bob Klose (born 1945; sometimes referred to as Bob Close or Brian Close in various publications) is a British musician. He was one of the earliest members of the rock band Pink Floyd, playing the lead guitar, however he left the band before they recorded (possibly excluding the earliest "Lucy Leave" and "I'm a King Bee" recordings.)

The Abdabs (a.k.a. The Architectural Abdabs, The Screaming Abdabs) with Roger Waters (lead guitar), Rick Wright (rhythm guitar), Nick Mason (drums), Clive Metcalfe (bass guitar), and Keith Noble & Juliette Gale (vocals), performed rhythm & blues under various names (Sigma 6, The T-Set, The Meggadeaths, and the Abdabs variations above) during their run with manager Ken Chapman, who also wrote some early material for the band.

Metcalfe, Noble, and Gale left the band around the time Wright and Gale married. Syd Barrett (guitar and vocals) and Bob Klose (lead guitar and vocals) joined the remaining members. They renamed themselves The Pink Floyd Sound (named after two old Georgia bluesmen, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council). The word "Sound" was dropped from the band's name, as, later, was the definite article.

Klose was more interested in jazz and blues than Barrett's psychedelia and pop and so left the band in 1965, shortly after joining. Barrett assumed lead guitar, lead vocals, and the bulk of the songwriting, while Klose went on to become a photographer.
