Jeff the Jesus Twin Mourns His Brother

August 13, 2008

Jeff, one half of The Jesus Twins, called in to mourn the loss of his brother, Eric, remarking that he’d learned a lot about manic-depression over the last few years. Howard said he’d seen hints of Eric’s illness during his last appearance on the show: “He actually got a little violent. It was the first time I’d seen anything like that.” Jeff told the crew that Eric went through extreme manic episodes – once even trying to set his house on fire – and just last week began a meltdown of epic proportions, culminating with the showdown that took his life.
