Jim left the band soon after Franché did and returned to his other band Continental Crawler. He later played for The Adults and Aces and Eights. Both Jim and Manny graduated from Lodi High School in 1971. After leaving Lodi, Jim moved to Hawthorne with his wife. Mr. Jim and his wife later moved to Hoboken, New Jersey.
