The without Jim part isn't even that important if done nicely. I just think its kinda weird ad lame to neglect their drummer..yet perhaps they asked him and he just shrugged prompting them to go to someone else..
Steve Jackson! Games! Sluggy.com! Games! And err..Games!
I played bass guitar in a band when I was much younger. They let me sing lead on two songs - Bad Moon Rising by CCR and Get a Haircut by Thorogood. I am overjoyed that James loves this song as much as me!
