Jim Beam (yes his real name) joined Steve Mueske and Greg Kalember in Gregs basement in the summer of 1983.  He played with Raven Bitch from its inception until he was forced to leave the band just days before their show at Summerfest in 1987.  Beam sustained a cut on his left hand that left him with severed tendons, and which required fairly extensive surgery to repair.  It would be many years before Jim could play the bass again.  Beamer would always remain a part of the band in spirit however, having drawn its ubiquitous logo, and having played on the Tear Down The Walls e.p. Timeline
