It was always a pleasure to see Jimmy at the ZAPPANALE in Bad Doberan walking around had fun with the people..... He was really a very friendly man and great musician too.<br />It is a very sad moment for all fans and we will miss him so much !
Thanks for all the great music, Mr. Black, and for being an inspiration to us all.<br /><br />You will never be forgotten.<br /><br />Bob
For Jimmy-I shall always remember your kindness towards myself and my young son on your visit to The Cluny in Newcastle. You posed for pictures and give my son Jack your drumsticks! We shall always treasure them.<br /><br />If you've got youtube in heaven look up Jack Briggs Middlesbrough-your influence has helped make him a great player.<br /><br />J.C.B. a great drummer and a gentleman!
So long, big fella. Thanks for your music!
RIP Jimmy. My favourite quote was "Frank is good, but Don [Vliet] is the real thing".
RIP Jimmy. Your drumming was awesome and I loved your work. Going to listen to some of it today and remember how you have inspired me. So long and thanks for all the fills.<br /><br />Bilbicus
He will always be "the Indian of the Group"<br />RIP JCB
What a great guy, RIP
Rest in peace .....my best Mother´s musician!
Rest easy bro. I never realized the power of music until I heard "freakout" for the first time in a 10th grade social studies class in 1966. Freakout was what the class did!
