Loss of leg didn't stop this drummer/singer Rob Taylor, drummer/singer/songwriter for the band Artok was only 17 when his right lower leg was severed in a terrible car crash. Still awake after the crash Rob knew his leg had been pinned in the mangled steel of the dashboard and passenger door. In shock he pulled his leg out of the crippled dash, then his foot fell onto the floor of the car. ""I remember seeing my boot on the floor after I had pulled it out of the dash. My toe was pointing backwards and my heel was in front." Explained Rob. "I turned my foot around and lined it up the right way. I told everyone in the car that my leg was off, then I went into shock." Reluctant to reattach his badly mutilated limb, the doctors gave into Rob's father's demands to save his leg. After 3 operations and 13 months on crutches, Rob finally began his rehabilitation. Incredibly, drumming on his bass drum was the best possible physical therapy for this type of injury. Rob's love for drumming and for music became the true healing power behind his overall recovery. Watching Rob play, you would never know that he had been injured at all. Somehow the accident became a blessing. "I became more determined than ever to have a career in music." Say's Rob. "I wouldn't stop no matter what." Now with the release of Artok's new CD titled Above Ground, the band with co-founder guitarist Robi Banerji, bassist Chris Tristram and guitarist Mark Jacobi are ready to show the world how that determination has paid off. With hits like Word Over Sword and Thinking Of You, to the rock sounds of Soul On A Chain and Heavy Hearts, Artok is bringing their sound to long time fans and a new audience of rock listeners. Also featured is an outstanding version of Rush's hit song Subdivisions in which Rob shows his amazing talent both as a singer and a drummer.
