Lloyd Jones and Mesi jammed with deLay, and they formed Brown Sugar.

...
1976 saw the formation of the deLay band Mk I, with Mesi, Brown Sugar drummer Bob Lyons, and Fred Coyner on bass.
...
That lineup eventually metamorphosed into the Mk II deLay band: deLay on harmonica and vocals; Dave Stewart ­p; late of Cray's band ­p; keys and vocals; Jim Mesi, guitar; Don Campbell, bass and vocals; and Paul Jones on drums.
...
With natural frontmen such as deLay, Stewart and Mesi, they worked those shows like a travelling blues revue.
...
Guitarist Jim Mesi left the band in the mid-'80s to clean up, after throwing away a fair bit of money and a few of his beloved guitars to feed a habit that got out of control. Keyboardist Dave Stewart ­p; who left in about 1984 ­p; sold a pound of coke to a DEA agent, and went away for a four-year prison term in 1986.
He's out now, working on a degree at Gonzaga College, and fronting a great band again. Mesi has been clean for four years. He's sounding great, has more guitars than ever and a fine band that's making a name for itself in the region.
