Praise for story on Robert Hilburn

October 18, 2009

Thanks to Geoff Boucher for the great write-up about my dad, Robert Hilburn ("A Champion and an Advocate," Oct. 11). I know he was touched by it, and I think you hit on the many truths of his career.

In terms of [Danny] Elfman's song, I once met a guy in the band when I was at UCLA and he gave me a bumper sticker reading "Hilburn and (Terry) Atkinson, the Real Imposters," confirming the story that I had heard before but never really believed.

The other song that is out there in the world consciousness somewhere is a Dr. Demento-played song called "Robert Hilburn."

The great line is:

He thinks Bob Dylan's really nice

Robert Hilburn

He thinks Bruce Springsteen's Jesus Christ

Robert Hilburn

Rob Hilburn Jr.

La Crescenta
