James Montgomery Almost Took The Wrong Trip
He was at school in the 1960s when he was inspired to start playing harmonica and joined the Milk River Jug Band – but they were older than him and the outfit split when his colleagues left for college.
"I started the Montgomery-Miller Band. We played Chicago and Detroit style blues and we were pretty successful," Montgomery tells MetroWest. "Then in my junior year of high school I took some LSD. The next morning I changed the name of the band to The Great Cosmic Expanding!" Fortunately the experimental direction proved to be just that.
