It was just another day of work for the staff of British Audio Service (BAS). Among their customers was a hunched over grandpa simply perusing… or so they thought. But when he plugged in a Gibson Epiphone guitar, the entire store came to a halt. As it turns out, the 81-year-old man was actually guitar legend Mr. Bob Wood of Tennessee.

Wood played a flawless rendition of the famous love song, “Besame Mucho.” “Besame Mucho,” written written in 1940 by Consuelo Velasquez, translates to “kiss me much” or “kiss me again and again.” In 1999 the song was recognized as the most sung and recorded Mexican song in the world. Despite the many covers the world has heard of this classic tune, Bob’s still stands out as particularly beautiful.
When he started to play the song, the entire store was completely caught off guard and blown away! “Thanks to his daughters, it was found out not long after that Bob isn’t just an amateur musician, but a local celebrity whose immense talent allowed him to enjoy a successful career in music.”
Fortunately, one of the staff members of BAS pulled out their camera in time to catch the performance. Watch the “knock-your-socks-off” playing from Mr. Bob in the video below and share his immense skill!
