He picked me up while I was hitchhiking across Los Angeles during the late 60's. Had a great time, and the first time I ran into Santa Marta Gold. God Bless you Bro' I have always had good memories of that ride, it was a definite "Sign of the Times". R.I.P.
saw the mothers in dallas in 68 and at the denver pop fest in 69. met don preston outside the fest & saw motorhead dive out of a 3rd story<br />window into the hotel pool. exchanged emails with JCB while writing a column for a music biz newsletter several years ago. it was a pleasure sharing virtual communication with jimmy. frank was a genius however my favorite FZ period was the original Mothers of Invention. what a band. the music of my youth is still the music of my life. Long Live The Mothers of Invention!
Wow, I'm very saddened by this news. Jimmy will be missed here for sure. I saw him a few years ago with the Grandmothers and I got to the venue to record the show and the place would not allow it. This was after getting permission from the band via email, but it wouldn't fly. Jimmy happened to walk out front while this was going on, and told the venue I was recording for him that night and was a crew member for the night, lol. Anyway they let me record the show, I sent Jimmy cd's of it shortly after. He was a great guy and an great drummer. RIP
Thanks for keeping the music real. Glad to have met you a few years ago in New York City. Save me a few more shows up there.
You left a great legacy. I'll look you up when I get there to shake your hand.
Jimmy Carl Black,<br /> Thank you for all the great tunes brother! I hope I get to go to Heaven cause I know you & Frank are jammin' for the big guy.
So sorry to hear this.<br />Thanks for the great music & laughs.<br />Well done, Jimmy.
my deepest condolences to family and friends- <br />it's so hard to think of "the indian of the group" being dead. it seems like only yesterday i was smoking pot to 'we're only in it for the money' and just a couple weeks ago i saw Joes Garage and met gail. I hope my kids start listening to this shit or we're all in big trouble.
After a few bones w/ the M.O.I. somewhere in the Village, Jimmy turns to me and says:"What R U high?" We had all come from boogieing with the Blues Project and I remember Tim Hardin puking on Jimmies Beatle boots and I replied "no, but Tim might be.<br /> My condolences to the family..<br />You will be missed.
I have a red set of drums! I'll never forget you<br />Jimmy Carl Black! I can't express how much your<br />music influenced me over the last two decades.<br />I grew up on The Mothers and in Los Angeles. That music is part of the geography as far as I'm concerned! R.I.P.
