CSI: Crime Scene Investigation‘s resident coroner, Robert David Hall (Dr Al Robbins), is getting ready to release an album called Things They Don’t Teach You in School. Hall recorded the bluesy music last summer in Austin, Texas with “some of the best sidemen in the business.” The actor told the Jacksonville Observer, “I’ve been a musician and a singer almost all my life, but it just sort of faded. [Then] My baby brother came down with cancer, liver cancer. He’s 46.”
His brother’s situation reminded Hall that people don’t have forever to get to “that secret list of things we want to do in life.” So he got busy. “I’m a good musician,” he continued. “I think I’m a good writer. I have no illusions. I just hope that people who check this out will enjoy it.” Hall wrote seven of the songs on the album and co-wrote two others. Samples of the music from Things They Don’t Teach You in School can be heard at robertdavidhallmusic.com.
