Jewel - High Quality Videos
** The gentleman in the second image is named Steve Poltz. He's quite a character. I first met him when his original band, The Rugburns, were playing a gig with Robyn Hitchcock at a club called The Magic Stick in the Detroit area. Very, very unfortunately, it seems that all of the Rugburns' albums are currently unavailable. During the show that I saw, the drummer spent some time running around the audience with a running chainsaw. Oh, and they made up a song about an audience member being a pedophile after he tried to heckle them. I laughed & laughed.
Both Steve & Jewel seemed, to me, to be genuinely nice people. It's a shame that they're no longer together. But, they shared some amazing adventures that they both tell with very little prompting. So, maybe that's the most important thing.
