As tributes poured in Sunday and Monday after the death of Bob Saget – the legendary comedian and actor best known for his role as Danny Tanner on “Full House” – they stood out for Bostonians, especially those who love the band Guster.
For those unfamiliar with the background story, Guster traces his roots to Tufts University, where members Brian Rosenworcel, Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller met and formed the band in 1991.
Rosenworcel, the drummer of the alternative rock band, recalled the 65-year-old Saget’s performance at the band’s show in 2007 at the Boston Opera House in a thread on Twitter.
Band members learned that Bob Saget was doing a standup down the street at the Orpheum Theater, and a plan was formed.
The band reached out to his management team and asked if he would “break through a Bob Saget banner” under their extra number. To the band’s surprise, Saget’s team agreed.
So the band made a “really home-spun” paper banner. When it was time for the extra number, the group began encouraging the audience to sing, “Bob! Bob! Bob!”
At one point, Rosenworcel realized that no one was telling lead singer and guitarist Gardner that the Case was on its way.
“I can see Adam getting super annoyed,” Rosenworcel recalls. “He strumps super aggressively on his guitar because he thinks it’s a lame joke, an exercise in anticlimax. That we get our bus driver or our guitar technology to break through and then play an empty extra number after arousing the audience with an unfilled lift.”
So, look and see, the Case blares through and delights the audience and the band.
“He hugged Ryan, shook hands with the band members, waved to the audience, told Ryan ‘this is great’ and left the stage. That was it,” Rosenworcel said.
Years later, Miller met Saget again and asked him if he remembered the show with Guster.
The case lit up as he told about his part, calling it “the best,” according to Rosenworcel.
“It really was (the best). RIP, Bob Saget,” Rosenworcel tweeted.
