What’s Jim Kweskin up to now?

Found out a friend o’ mine does business with Jim Kweskin’s construction company in Los Angeles. My wife reminds me that I once spent a night pickin’ with Kweskin, Fritz Richmond (the gut-bucket player in the Kweskin Jug Band) and Bobby Neuwirth, who became a very close confidant of Bob Dylan. Good example of the East-West cross-pollination via the “Berkeley-Cambridge Axis” of the early ’60’s. Kweskin being in the construction business surprised me; I didn’t know he was Italian.
