I was wondering if anyone knew if any of the newer members have gotten the Mushroom Tattoo? Just curious about the small stuff...didn't Gregg give out gold necklaces in the 80's that were shrooms? Curious to know if that stuff still goes on. TR

Jaimoe has his necklace on every time I see him. Not sure about the others, but Derek doesn't have the tattoo.

Pretty sure Warren doesn't have the tattoo either. Not sure about Oteil or Marc.

I think this shroom tattoo is shared among the original members of the band only. I seem to remember that Red Dog and Twiggs have this tattoo as well. Maybe he'll venture over here and enlighten inquiring minds.

Maybe it's because I'm a dirty sailor, but where I come from getting a mushroom tattoo means something totally different. As in, "If you don't be quiet, you're gonna get a fat mushroom tattoo right across your forehead."

I didn't think Woody or Warren ever got a mushroom tattoo. Woody had a few, so maybe he did get one later. But didn't their refusal cause resentment from the original members, in particular Dickey?

Warren doesn't have the mushroom or any other tattoo. He's afeared of needles.

Woody did in fact, have the mushroom tattoo. I met Allen back in 1995 at the ATTIC in Greenville, NC during an appearance with Mule. We spoke about many things, including tattoos and he showed me the famous shroom tat! I have a thread over in Allen's section about our meeting...check it out if you are interested. Allen was a supercool and candid guy and I never forget meeting and hanging out with him...thanks Al!!!

Billy Bob Thornton has it. Now that is a fan. I'll bet there are others.

Supposedly Billy Bob had her name taken off that tattoo, since they're divorced now. Oh well. The ABB will never leave you.

Billy Bob Thornton is quite the musical fan and he's not bad himself. His "Private Radio" album wasn't great, but it didn't suck either. And besides being a huge fan of the ABB, he was very close with Warren Zevon and did a lot of background vocals on Warren's last album. He also did BV's on a couple of his earlier albums too.

Since we're fluffing Billy Bob here, he also filmed/produced a couple Widespread Panic videos.....

Maybe the ABB could send us a cd version of postcards, similar to what the Stones did in their Exile on Main St. album!

I still have those post cards! Several years after I got the album, I decided to wrap them in plastic to preserve them and they're in better shape than the album cover.
