My condolences to the family. Jimmy was an amazing and dedicated musician. I still have my (Mono) copy of Freak Out that got me into a bit of hot water when I brought it to junior high school for my English class around 1966. How cool was it that when I moved to Austin I had a chance to meet and hear the original!<br /><br />Say howdy to Frank for us...
Kim and family-<br />My sincere condolences to you all. your dad was always a fun man and a great musician. It's been years, but I'll always remember watching him play in the Mesilla Valley...
SAN BERDOO,CA. loved Jimmy& the rest of THE MOTHERS!<br />Keep playing that drum!<br /><br />Nestor P.
I am so sorry to hear that Jimmy has passed away.<br />I saw Jimmy a week before he passed away on Saturday in Höpfling on his balcony talking with friends and enjoying the afternoon. I heard recently that he was living not far from us in Siegsdorf.<br />I send all my compassion to his wife and children.<br />It is hard to lose a dad or a husband.<br /><br />RIP<br /><br />David, Am venusberg, Siegsdorf
Hey Jimmy,<br /><br />You were a great guy. We only meet a few times but it was always fun. New Years eve 1985 in Arizona stands out as a winner.<br /><br />You will be missed. Good luck to all your family you live behind. My best wishes.<br /><br />N
Jimmy Carl Black you forever made your mark on musical history with your work with Frank Zappa and The Mothers. Please tell him the world misses him greatly when you catch up with him at the band practice taking place in eternity. May you rest in peace and may your family find consolation in your memory now that you have left us. You shall never be forgotten. KP
Hey Jimmy, You were one of the best! RIP music man!<br />Sincere condolences to the Black family, may your memories of Jimmy always bring a smile to your faces. Peace & Love!
My sincere condolences to the family. I don't know anyone who's ever heard Jimmy's line about being the Indian of the group who didn't enjoy it or whose ever forgotten it!<br /><br />What a great message on his homepage too. <br /><br />Peace.
Sincere condolences to the Black family; I treasure the memories; I still have the albums. He will be <br />missed.
I loved the Mothers. I still have the Freak Out album and a number of others. I had a great time listening to your music. I remember tripping with some friends and seeing you in 200 Motels. Like many others, I have spouted "Hi boys and girls, I'm Jimmy Carl Black, and I'm the Indian of the the group!" 100's of times. These days I know few people who ever heard of the Mothers or you, but I remember. <br /><br />Thanks for being a musician and sharing your gift.
