Who Were Those Masked Men?

Hi, nice article, and good to see attention given to a fine group of musicians. I wish to point out an inaccuracy related to this item in the article:

In actuality the reformed group included bass player Scott Esbeck and Jimmy Lester on drums (Jimmy left the group just 3-4 years ago).

From the Los Straitjackets website:
