Jack Sherman was the 2nd guitarist to join the band and played on their debut album titled the same as their band name. The guitarist even co-wrote most of their second album.
Controversy surrounded the guitarist when in 2012, Sherman wasn't inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the other members.
The Hall of Fame stated that this was because only original members, current members and those who played on multiple albums were eligible for induction.
However, Sherman was deeply revered by the band, fans and others in the industry. Sherman has worked alongside great artists such as- Bob Dylan and George Clinton.
