In Memory of
HMR played on the "Easy Rider" movie and Soundtrack and toured extensively around the Country after moving to Portland.
Another band formed here during that time was "Jeffrey Frederick and the Clamtones", also in Portland from 1974-1978. Jeffrey died in 1997.
Remnants of both bands still exist in Portland as the "Freak Mountain Ramblers" who formed in 1997 and still play extensively in WA and OR
