Clem 1997

Remember that band Rhythm Town Jive Steve Grogan was preforming in a few years back?  

As far back as 1997, Tim Eschilman, the founding member of Rhythm Town Jive has put together a separate band just for the holiday season titled The Christmas Jug Band.  They put out several albums.  I am not sure if they ever toured.

I was aware of this information for some time now.
I had tried my hardest to find pictures, because I knew Adam Gabriel was part of that band as well.  
I did my best internet sleuthing but came up empty.

Thanks to "J" for being a better web sleuth than I.  Below is the link to the picture of  The Christmas Jug Band circa 1997. Adam Gabriel is on the left with the Dobro resonator guitar.
He still had most of his hair and hadn't gotten fat yet.

It seems Scramblehead and Tim Eschilman's history goes back 13 years.  I wonder how long Tim knew of Adam Gabriel's past life?  I mean, we're they just sitting around one day and reminiscing about their pasts, telling stories and Adam said  "Oh yeah, one time when I was in The Manson Family....."

There was a photo of Clem and CJB that was floating around where he was holding a very odd looking guitar (or looked like it) and he was wearing a very odd hat, like one of those Kangol golfing hats. It also looked like he had a mustache. He was with a man with a standing bass and a bango man and one of those flat sliding guitars. it was a concert. I remember seeing this on a Manson news group thingy about 1999. Pardon my English it is my second laguag.

Your English is excellent. Better than most Americans.

I like the B&W foto. I guess B&W is dead now that we have digital cameras. BTW does anybody have any AA batteries? My digicam batts are dead again.........as usual.

sorry, but the guy on the left with the resonator isn't Clem. Doesn't look a bit like him, either. Nobody in that picture is him.
