CITY UNCONNECTED: Although today John Nygren (far right) does live in Los Olivos, he christened the band Buellton (pictured in Jack Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps & Petroliana) long before calling the Santa Ynez Valley home, simply because he saw it on a street sign and thought it sounded cool. Drummer Eric Herzog (laughing) approved, so the name stuck, and now the touring band also features winemaker Graham Palmer (second from right) and Foundation Press owner Curt Crawshaw.
