He became involved in the Transplants when Tim Armstrong asked for lyrics to the songs Aston was making. The two started jamming in Armstrongs's basement whenever they found the time. They eventually enlisted Travis Barker from blink-182 to do the drum tracks, instead of having drum-loops as originally planned. At the end of the 2005 Vans Warped Tour the Transplants took a hiatus and Rob and Travis joined Houston rapper Paul Wall, who chopped and screwed the Transplants' Haunted Cities album, to form a new group called Expensive Taste. He has been interviewd by Nardwuar the Human Serviette, along with Travis. His favourite tattoo artist is Mr.Cartoon, along with Travis Barker also. Rob sang on the track "Red Hot Moon" from Rancid's Indestructible album and Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards song "Switchblade".
He was also featured on Bun B's 2005 album Trill, on the track "Late Night Creepin'." Skinhead Rob is in the process of recording for 'Warfare' who involves Skinhead Rob and the rapper Damu. Rob's songs usually follow a theme of his rough unbringing, urban gang warfare, his drug abuse and losing friends to violent deaths. Read more on Last.fm.
