On September 29, 2020, David Robinson, beloved brother and friend passed away at only 49 years of age. If you were in a bind, needed advice, or just needed a friend, he was there for you. Dave was a brilliant drummer with a passion for music of all kinds. From Madonna to Led Zeppelin, Alice in Chains to King Crimson and beyond. You could always count on Dave to introduce you to new music, open your mind to new adventures and to make you laugh until tears ran down your face. Aside from being a joker (in a good way), he was also a huge science fiction fan. He introduced many to Doctor Who, his favorite TV show, along with his huge library of brilliantly obscure sci-fi classics. Dave was pure love and light. Anyone who met him instantaneously loved him, it was inevitable. Not a soul on earth could resist his contagious optimism with a tinge of the darkest humor. Dave was definitely one of a kind, a unique soul. He will be missed and forever loved by all including his beloved cats, 2 brothers, sister in law and countless friends and family.

Besides watching and sharing his favorite TV shows, Dave was a prolific writer, avaricious reader, student of philosophy who perpetually pontificated the meaning of it all. On an angry, blue, sphere, floating in time & space, he was always the one you wanted to “hang” with and he will be missed by so many. Did I mention he played the drums in many, now lost, NYC venues, including the infamous CBGB’s? Well he did, and we could go on for days. We have plenty of stories to tell. Please share your own stories and memories of Dave.

“I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams” – Doctor Who

Always love, indeed.

I’ll never forget meeting Dave for the first time at Untermeyer Park and he was quoting The Song Remains the Same - I instantly knew he was cool and had awesome taste!! He was always so joyful and kind and his adorable dimpled smile would light up the room! I’m so so sorry for your loss. Lots of Love, Jess Anderson xoxox
