In the 30 years since, the cowbell cheer has undergone several changes as it passed through the hands of many Lynah Faithful. At one point, it was played by three people, one with a cowbell, one with a washboard, and a third with a wood block. Amidst the infamous circumstances regarding the replacement for Jamie Weber '98, I assumed bell duties in the 1998-99 season and continued until the end of the 2003-2004 season. Here is Jamie doing the cheer from the Pep Band 's Live At Lynah CD from the 1997-98 season:
