Looking for the perfect poster of your favorite band? You won't find any *NSYNC or Britney posters by Bob Masse but you'll still love his work. His psychedelic posters include musicians such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2 and Fiona Apple.

Bob always liked to draw. He was born in Burnaby, Canada and used to have serious competitions with his cousin to see who could draw the most Bugs Bunnies. After graduating, Bob went to art school. He starting hanging out at the local coffee shops which gave him the opportunity to do concert posters for the musicians that came through town. One of his earlier posters was done for a young, new hot shot from New York - Bob Dylan. He wasn't a big name back then and Bob accidentally spelt his last name Dylon.

After a trip to San Francisco during the mid 1960s, Bob's style changed a lot. He got more psychedelic. He took a trip to Los Angeles to do the Collectors' album cover and ended up living there for a few years. During that time, Bob produced posters and album covers.

He returned to Canada and did some commercial artwork. Right now he only does posters which take about three weeks to a month to complete. Why does he only do musicians? "Because what I really like to do is the artwork," he explains. "Basically, I've gotten into this field and I have a marketplace. I'm an artist. I want to do a certain type of art." The one band Bob would love to do his 'certain type of art' for - The Rolling Stones.

Bob's posters are usually around $25 but if you want an autographed one, the price goes up. You'll even find some collectable posters by him. His posters can be found all over the states and in Vancouver, Canada so keep your eyes open for his unique work.

    I'm drowning in my own sorrow, I feel trapped in this dark place, Hoping for a better day tomorrow, I just need time and space, Or is it too late? My happiness has already been replaced, Now my heart is out for debate, Does anyone see ## ####? For gods sake, When you look in my eyes all you see is rain, It's my loss and Satans gain, Why am I letting him win? I'm not the type to ever sin! I'm breaking down, It's to late to turn this around, But what more am I really needing? I have friends and family that love me And in school my education is succeeding, It's so dark why can't I see? This depression is taking over me, This is a horrible sight, Is it all in my head? Taking medication every night, I can't sleep rolling around In my bed, "I can't take this I'm done fighting myself"  is what I said. This chemical imbalance in my head caused by fighting with oneself is taking over my health, Have I truly givin up? Playing this role is tough, Being happy I have learned to pretend, But faking a smile everyday is not enough, I try to think positive, But things pile up on me and become to rough, The story of my life is this the end? Stomach tied in knots, eyes bottled up, Now depression is my new best friend, I feel like I've been driving on the same road for days, and finally hit a dead end, I've never done anything to hurt anyone, this isn't fair, Someone help me is anyone there?!? I'm dying for help, Where is the warmth and light? These things to me are unfelt, There it is, I see the light, Standing here I sigh, As it comes towards me it's so bright, it's shining in my eyes and BAMM!  God has saved me once again, I get a second chance , For love and romance, My life is renewed, I get to start fresh start new, Now i can do things I never got to do, And its All thanks to you, My guardian angel sent from above, Here to guide me with all of your endless love, You were by my side this whole time. And guided me through , For that matter, Now and forever, I will always love you
