One of my favorite albums of all time is called The Jerry Hahn
Brotherhood - it features keyboardist/vocalist supreme Mike Finnigan.
The album was produced by Joe Gannon and Larry Sharp. I don't know who
Larry is but Joe has had a huge career from Kingston Trio to Alice
Cooper to running Zappa's record company (according to wiki).
Does anyone have any info on this guy in the FZ world?
Here's a few links to show what I'm talking about:
Jerry Hahn Brotherhood opened a few shows for The Mothers around the
time their album came out in 1970 - Fillmore East, etc....
If anyone has any of their live shows, I'd love to find some of those,
as they're a rare find.
I have a collection of JHB posters, covers, etc in the photo pages at
I grew up woth Mike in Kansas and he told me that before FZ hired Bobby
Martin, he asked Mike to join the band but Mike had already signed on
with someone else.
Hendrix hired Mike to play on Electric Ladyland, so he seems to be
respected by a few giants out there:
If you'd like to see Mike in action with Steve Stills and Mike teaching
you how to sing a Blues classic - feel free:
Anyway, I'm on mission to try and get this long forgotten lost gem of
an album re-released, re-mastered with the usual bonus tracks, etc -
but Joe is retired in Hawaii with his restaurant - Joe's:
Any info would be much appreciated and thank you.
