Ron Meagher

The Beau Brummels forged folk rock along with kindred spirits The Byrds; they were country rock pioneers (Bradley’s Barn, 1968); and were among the seminal ‘60s sound of San Francisco ensembles along with Moby Grape, Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver Messenger Service.

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 ended his Brummels career. Returning stateside, he toiled in the Black Velvet Band with bandmate Dec Mulligan before leaving the music biz for a career in photography.
