Skeat had a musical upbringing, with his father, Bill – a session musician – actively encouraging his musical development. In the mid-1990s, Skeat played with Mark Birch in "So!", and shortly afterwards began recording bass tracks for Wishbone Ash's 1997 Trance Visionary album when he was offered the full-time bass position by Andy Powell. Birch joined the band on guitar soon after.
Bob previously played bass for Toyah Wilcox.
