Big Brass Bed news: Doug Lindsay has joined the band as
bassist, as Randy Ward has moved back to Iowa to care for his sister.
Doug's been playing with the Humdingers now for some time,
so for the first time The H's and BBB's are the same band.
We wish Randy the very best and thank him for the great music
he made with us. Photos to come.
