Ron Meagher (Beau Brummels)


Americana pioneers?


Kindred spirits to the countrified Byrds, and among the seminal ‘60s “sound of San Francisco” ensembles Moby Grape, Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver Messenger Service, Beau Brummels’ bassist Ron Meagher was a pocket player who also sang harmony and occasional lead on the band’s first three sides which were a watershed meld of folk, pop, and psychedelia.


Drafted in ’68, Ron served two years in the military, which essentially ended his Brummels career. Returning stateside, Ron anchored Black Velvet with bandmate Dec Mulligan before leaving the music biz for a career in photography.
