Notes:

More Echo Park Jimmy. Can there be enough? Nah, probs not.

What better way to end the ‘Guest Shot’ week with our special guest, Echo Park Jimmy! We are forever grateful for his willingness to volunteer (no, seriously we are). Here are The Cars and The Smithereens to end your week on a good note!

FUN FACT: After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Ben Orr, co-founder, former bassist and vocalist for The Cars, vowed to continue playing until the day he died. He did just that by performing just six days before his death on October 3, 2000.
