Tim Mooney

Tim Mooney was a member of American Music Club for what some consider their ‘classic’ line up.  As the drummer, he performed on the subtle gem that is 1993’s Mercury and the follow-up San Francisco.  When AMC regrouped in 2004 he played a central role on the heaving, dark beast of an album Love Songs For Patriots, aiding on production as well as drums.

He was also involved with Dakota Suite on 2003’s This River Only Brings Poison, a languid gem, then later that year he performed on the first Sun Kil Moon album, Ghosts of the Great Highway.  American Music Club, Dakota Suite and Sun Kil Moon is some CV.  At 54 years of age he died painfully young of a heart attack.
