That photo comes from the Berry family. We used it in the packaging for "Carnival of Sound."

Hey Mark I got a question about the photos of Jan with the models , Were they taken b4 or after the crash ? He's using his right arm but that dont mean anything in a photo, Noticed he also had a beard !

Well, Jan & Dean were on tour -- on and off -- in March and April '66, including the days leading up to the crash. So it's hard to imagine Jan with a beard and moustasche during that period.

It's my understanding that these photos are from '67 or '68 -- the "Carnival" era.

Jan could physically guide his right arm with his left, which would explain why it looks like he has the center blonde in a choke-hold :)

A reporter once noted that post-accident Jan shook hands by guiding his right arm with his left, and then using his right hand to squeeze the reporter's right hand "with a grip that could crush a surfboard."

I think I've said it here B4 . And I know it might be wrong . But I would like to see different angles of the car. This angle although slightly different and a much better picture. Is the same as the news photo.

If you pause the video on the car you can see the front right wheel(passenger side) looks out of line with the other driver side wheel,(i m sure this was a left handed drive),the wheel still looks attached,by looking it looks like the back passenger wheels is still attached,can t see the driver side wheel,i wonder how much the fire crew cut to get jan out,as it looks the body work has been shattered,
