Thread Name: Whatever happened to Bruno Wolf??
Subject: RE: Whatever happened to BRUNO WOLF??
To Art Thieme, I have it from the guy who sang on The Eggplant That Ate Chicago that he ain't Bruno. I also feel Bruno was a wondrous product of his time, and his several solos on the J.K. Jug Band stand out for their funky sublimity. Goeff Muldahr answered an email of mine to say Bruno was a friend of Kweskin's named David Simon, and that Simon became a Scientologist. Whether the same Simon worked for Reagan is a maybe I can't answer. but the Jug Band replaced Bruno with Mel Lyman, a pathological mystic shaman who thought he was God, and convinced Jim Kweskin he just might be. Lyman died; Kweskin has now returned to music and tours with Muldahr, and hopefully Jim is still married to Marilyn. Dunno,    Rick Zollo, an early fan of the Jug Band
