I was listening to an ARU show I DL from the archives. In the band intoduction it was said that Jimmy Herring was a boxing heavyweight champion of the world. Is this true?

I've been following boxing since Clay changed his name to Ali. How did I miss Jimmy?

BTW. Frogwings DVD video offered in the vine section. Its a great video, Jimmy and Derek really shine, as well as the rest of the band.

I really did think that... wow he still introduces himself as "Oteil from Egypt". Surely his heritage is Egyptian?

punknseed - did it happen to be Jimmy's birthday as well?

"You know, Jimmy was born in INSERT TOWN HERE, and he always loves to come home."

"Back in Houston, Texas in 1971, a man come up to me and said 'Can you find a drummer who can play anything?' I said 'That's Apt. Q-258'"

Bruce's introductions are more entertaining than most band's entire shows!

No, it's true.
