Artist Spotlight::The Dilettantes and Joel Gion

Remember Joel Gion from Dig! How can you forget him? I think most of us thought Joel’s performance was as memorable as Anton’s in the documentary. It was fascinating that as much drama as was going on, Joel was always just floating around, never a part of it all. Joel should go down as one of the greatest tamborine men in rock history. I put him up there with my other two picks – Gene Clark and Davy Jones. Anyway, Joel has been the singer and tamborine man for a band called The Dilettantes for a while now. Check out the songs on their myspace. There is also an article from last weeks San Francisco Bay Guardian.
