Were thinking about getting the band back together, but we want to maintain the same sound. Any idea what banjo Bibendum is playing here?

It looks like a Paramount. The inlays are difficult to see but I think it's a Style B.

OK. Another extremely disturbing photo from years gone by.

I’m trying to grasp the concept of tire men playing music.

Michelin...or DaDaist theater of the absurd?

Looks like the Merry Mummies have struck again.

It's not a real banjo. It's simply been cut down from a 185 R-14 radial. It may have some traction with Bibendum and his rubber buddies, but with a band dressed in such a manner, I'm certain their public image soon skidded off the musical highway.

They're second album might have gained traction but the lead singer was screaming he couldn't breath and would walk off stage after a number or two, Axl wasn't the first.. lol.
