Yeah, I remember Jimmie [F] Rodgers (middle one) from that odd pop/folk nexus of the early sixties.Played gutstring guitar, sang in a sweet tenor. "Bim-bom-bay" (sp?) was a hit for him, too. His song and his vocal style were used in the jingle for the cereal "Honeycomb" at one time. A probably unreliable memory : I think during the highway assault that broke his head, his clothes were stolen from the back seat of his car.
