Administrative history

Brain Damage formed in 1971 and included the following members: David Engleman (bass, vocals), Gary Cramer (vocals, guitar), Bing Jensen (vocals, guitar), Larry "Lunchpail" McGillivray (drums, vocals) , Helen Davis (vocals) and Joel Bert (percussion, vocals). Peter Vogel travelled with the band as stage crew and Fred Michael as the sound technician.

Bing Jensen and David Engleman were originally from San Jose, California and Joel Bert was originally from Brooklyn, New York.

In the mid 1970's Larry McGillivray left the band for a few years. Brain Damage identified themselves as a family band that was also known as the Flying Hearts Family. The flying heart logo was used on many of their posters as well as on their oversize canvas tent that they often set up to play shows in.

The band collectively moved for a period of time to the Nelson area and then settled in and around Vancouver. Helen Davis left the band to pursue other interests and in the early 80's Fred Michaels became the saxaphone player in the band.

In 1975, Brain Damage members Joel Bert (percussion), Gary Cramer (guitar, vocals), David Engleman (bass, vocals) and Larry McGillivray (drums, vocals) briefly left to form the band Ridgerunner with Mike Beddoes (guitar, vocals) and Elliot Turret (guitar, vocals).

Brain Damage members continued to perform together periodically under that name until the deaths of Joel Bert and Gary Cramer in the mid 2000s.
