Allan D’souza ~ ‘I recall David (Daoud) and Bobby Frederick singing ‘He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother’ at a social club named ‘The Bean Stock’ in Karachi. The harmony just blew me away. All done with Bobby playing a hollow body guitar. The American Teen singing group on tour were just as impressed.’

Heike Mazzola ~ “always remember the US boys going crazy when he (Daoud Rafik) was singing “country roads” at Sonesta’.

  1. I loved Daoud and Bobby. They were my best pals. We had great times especially Daoud and myself at Beach Luxury’s 2001.

    • I knew them from 4th grade, David, Bobby, Tony and Veronica. Does anybody know where they are? Last I met Bobby was in 1970’s before I left for higher education in USA. I know Veronica and Tony had left for California. Any information about any of the brothers/sister will be greatly appreciate.

      • Bobby is in the UK and David (Daoud) is in Egypt. I am in touch with them. If you go to our Legendary Musicians of Karachi group (forum) and page on Facebook you will be able to connect with them right away.
