Hughes - Guitar and Vocals
being introduced to the Zink Alloy experience, Bob has been ecstatic
about the great attitude shared by all of the members of Zink Alloy.

and having fun!
Bob cut his musical teeth on guitar in 1977, with classic rock hits from
Alice Cooper, Sabbath, and Skynyrd. Various garage bands later, he found
himself involved in an R.I. band named Marci and the Stone Crushers,
playing mainly original music with a Rolling Stones flare.
From there, Bob was part of quite a few bands, ranging from top 40/pop
to heavy rock. His recent stint with a Rockin' R&B band had him playing
guitar and keyboards, and singing a few tunes. It was almost fun :)
In November of 2003, after a call from his high school friend ( Chris ),
Bob sat in with Zink Alloy for a few tunes. As chance had it, Bill Zink

continues to rock, playing at clubs and parties across RI.
Bob lives in North Providence with his two kids. His days are spent
working as an Engineering Manager at Picor, a local Integrated
