Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost was a nominee in the category of Americana in last year's RFT Music Awards. The group was also profiled in a feature by Josh Levi last summer. In that feature, Levi had this to say about the group's inimitable frontman:

Bob Reuter is a living legend. With a music career that spans nearly five decades, he's found a renewal of rock & roll energy in Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost. He writes unapologetic songs incorporating folk and garage rock, defined by an unmatched grit and fire in the belly. His creative endeavors run the gamut: radio DJ, photographer, writer, storyteller and, most of all, rock & roller.

Check out the video below, and remember that it will soon self destruct. Directed by Wolfgang Lehmkuhl, produced by Jon Feraro and photographed by Michael Lowhorn.

A living legend? The only thing this guy should be legendary for is his ego and his crappy treatment of women. When a guy photoshops his ex's face onto a woman masturbating and posts it on a porn site with her contact info he's pretty much scum.

Bob reminds me of the Andy Griffith character in A Face In The Crowd. I don't know how anyone can standhim.

It irks me how Bob keeps going on about what a legend he is and how he was in "the first punk band in St. Louis". The Dinosaurs weren't a punk band, they were a dumbass garage band just like 80,000 bands before them. Punk was a small scene back then and we all knew each other, and Bob and the Dinosaurs were definitely not part of that scene. Their music isn't punk, the clothes - if you were around back then it's all wrong. The clincher? He's always talking about how they'd play frat parties. No punk band would ever play a frat party - you'd get the shit beaten out of you! Frat boys did not like punks at all. The kids who follow him are all so dumb they've fallen for his crap because to them all that music from that time period sounds the same. It sucks because he's stealing all this glory that he doesn't deserve, and the real people who pioneered punk are going unnoticed. The only person I know who knew Bob from that period says he was a "loser who took too many drugs and hated his wife."

Finally, the biggest ego in St. Louis music meets the biggest egos in St. Louis video! What's with all those huge ass credits taking up half the film? It disappears after a certain time? Give me an f-ing break, that is the stupidest gimmick I've ever heard. Can you make Bob go disappear, too? Now that would be a service to St. Louis.

Does he make jokes about rape on this video? You know rape is such a funny subject, at least according to Bob. He's the biggest jerk in St. Louis.

Bob Reuter is a living legend - in his own mind! The rest of us think he's a douchebag!

Finally Bob meets his match - this video company has as big an ego as he does. The credits take up half the video, full screen. You don't think these guys might like themselves just a little too much, do you? And what, no half-naked young girls prancing around for Bob's predatory enjoyment? I'm disappointed!

RFT is hyping this dumbass again? Bob Reuter is a sexist, racist douchebag who is recycling the same crap he was doing 30 years ago. The video will be pulled at midnight tomorrow? Thank God - deep six it! To his band - wake up kids! You have more talent in your little toes than Bob has in his whole body. Ditch this a-hole and people will respect you a whole lot more.
