Michael "Spider" Wynn

Barely Appreciated


In 1965Stephen Thomas Erlewine and his brother formed a blues band called the Prime Movers; original bandmembers were Stephen Thomas Erlewine (lead singer, harmonica), Dan Erlewine (lead guitar), Robert Sheff (keyboards), Robert Vinopal (bass), and Michael "Spider" Wynn (drums).  After Wynn left the band, he was replaced by James Osterberg.  A few years later, Osterberg began performing as Iggy Popand under this name, he founded the proto-punk band the Stooges.  His nickname was due to Osterberg's serving as the drummer for another Michigan band called the Iguanas
