BY ROBB GILBEAR
Die Before They Do is a collection of stories that shares a journey through entrepreneurship, self-doubt, massive career changes, struggles with alcohol, near death experiences, an obsession with music, finding love, and being a parent—all while searching for bigger meaning and purpose in one’s life. Some of these stories are wild and entertaining. Some are more profound. All of them are true.

Here's a collection of videos and pictures that bring some of the book's stories to life.
Dirty Cash to Daft Punk
From struggling to get booked in Toronto to playing shows in Miami, San Francisco, and the UK. The book covers the journey of my first career as a DJ and music producer.
Chapter 5 is about how me and 33 other teens almost died coming back from a rave in a cube van. This is the newspaper clipping about the accident.
Without A Paddle
I share my craziest manifestation story in Chapter 15 of how I quit my job by telling them I was hired somewhere else, applied to that other place after quitting, and then got the job. I recorded this video of me telling that story in 2014.
12 Inch Therapy
The first half of the book shares many of my adventures and misadventures with music. Here's a second video of me DJing. This one at the incredible Pride Festival in Toronto.
Dancing In Paris
Chapter 39 shares the story of how I pushed through my fears of getting kicked out of the Louvre and danced around Paris.
