Last weekend on his Facebook page, Rob posted the following memorial to best friend and former bandmate, Georgie Seville:
"These are obviously extremely troubled times, but I just want to acknowledge that since his passing, today is the first birthday of the Late, Great Georgie Seville. To everyone who knew and loved our dear Georgie, and to anyone else out there who has ever lost a close friend, this post is for you: I wrote a song about losing Georgie called 'One More Saturday Night.' I started writing it the day before his funeral and finished it about a week later. It was extremely painful to write, but after 25 years of friendship, I felt compelled and obligated to pay tribute to the one, true King of New York. Please feel free to download it here. Be safe, friends. God bless. And Long Live the Man, the Myth and the Legend, Georgie Seville."
Georgie Seville had been a beloved figure on the New York rock scene since the early '90s. Seville was well known on the circuit as a highly popular club owner, musician and promoter, and to many he was a cherished and brotherly friend. During his time in The Compulsions, Georgie performed several gigs with the group as well as recorded the searing guitar solo on signature track, "I Was Right, You Were Wrong."
Seville was born on March 28, although his age remains unknown. Georgie died suddenly and unexpectedly on June 15, 2019 – and like the clubs and events he promoted, his devastatingly somber and upsetting funeral was a who's who of downtown nightlife. Georgie Seville will not be forgotten.
