Bobby Rondinelli came to BOC in 1997 after having played with, amongst others, Black Sabbath and Rainbow.
With a pedigree like that, it was no wonder that he stepped into his role with a hard-hitting flair not previously seen in BOC. With his 5 foot gong in tow, Bobby is not a drummer you overlook onstage. Together with Danny Miranda on bass, the two create a driving rhythm that's tight and tasty.
Bobby is a co-writer of "One Step Ahead of the Devil" and "Eye of the Hurricane" on the "Curse of the Hidden Mirror" album.
Bobby left BOC September 18, 2004 to join up with the band The Lizards.
In 2008, Bobby joined up with former BÖC bassist Greg Smith in "Over The Rainbow," a Rainbow tribute band with guitarist Jurgen Blackmore, Ritchie Blackmore's son, Joe Lynn Turner and Paul Morris. They toured from 2008-2010.
In the summer of 2010, Bobby subbed for Foghat drummer Roger Earl while he was recovering from surgery.
