So we all know about Bobby Brady's not-too-successful fling with the percussive arts.

Well this ain't about that although the little scamp is involved.

Yes, the cursed Tiki idol! I mean it even caused Alice to throw out her back doing the hula. Bad juju!!!

Well now, that brings us to Greg. It's all pretty much his fault isn't it? And what did he get for stealing the idol? A massive wipeout!

But all ended well when the boys returned the idol to Vincent Price in the third episode! Yay!

What the heck does this have to do with Squid you may ask? Well I was consigned to sculpt a tiki mug commemorating this great moment in TV history which means I can die happy now!

Here's the original sculpture from which molds were made to produce the mug.

Anyhoo, in case anyone was wondering what the hell I do when I'm not here you now have a snippet. Pretty sure this is the pinnacle though. Unless I get a commission to do a Mitch Mitchell mug but that would be kinda weird and possibly tacky. :)

Very cool Squid! Hmmm! The white one looks like a bar of soap. I think I would need a Marcia bar though!

PS: I know someone who would got bat crazy over a Mitch Mitchell mug.

For the hardcore Bunch collectors I'll post a link when it goes on sale in a few weeks. I will put it in the everything else for sale section.

Thanks for all your kind words! This was a very difficult secret to keep for over a year!

A fantastic artist AND a fantastic drummer! Very cool.
Dave/Squid preceded me in the money band I've been in for the last 21 years, through which (in addition to my day gigs) I managed to put 2 kids through college. He is indeed a great player, whose shoes were a challenge to fill. He's also the funniest drummer I know. The guy can crack jokes with his drums in the midst of a song, and actually GET AWAY WITH IT. Many have tried, few have succeeded.

Dave, I'm glad we could reconnect here on DFO.
