People often wonder about how Bob comes up with some of the random and whimsical sounding names for his song and album titles. Bob's Fading Captain Series was such a name and there is a story behind it which have heard Bob tell once or twice.
Bob has always had a hands-on approach when it came to recording songs. Bob may not understand all the knobs on a mixer, but he does understand and has mastered the use of the faders. At the end of every song, when it comes time to fade-out the song, Bob always performs this task because he is "The Fading Captain".
