Hey Daryl and Gary...<br />I just wanted to send my condolences to you guys. I just read about your dad's passing on MSN.com. I remember how kind he was to me the few times I ran into him while we were all in Jazz Band together...may his spirit rest in a higher place.<br /><br />Take care of yourselves.<br /><br />Lynn
We will all miss you Jimmy.<br />It's always a major loss when a great musician passes, especially someone you've stollen riffs from all these years. <br />Thanks for the inspiration Jimmy.<br />See you on the other side,<br />Carl
Say hi to Dee for me. RIP my friend.
Yo Jimmy..Is Frank making any deals with the Man? Will always miss the days with The Mothers! RIP!
Thanx Jimmy for all the excitement
Jeez, JCB is gone. Brought back memories of high school in '69. We'd put a stack of Mothers LPs on the turntable and just keep turning them over all afternoon. No one else got it. Saw you play at the old Paul's Mall in Boston. You were a great drummer, a terrific character, and a better person.<br /><br />See Frank when you get there. He said he's got your check.
So sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. I loved him and his music. Met him at a concert many years ago of Jeronimo Black in Los Angeles. I remember him singing these words at the end of a song: "...and I want to ask you who...are the savages?" <br />He told me (after that concert) that he felt Frank Zappa cheated him out of a million dollars. However that may be, I felt Jimmy's energy as positive and basically honest. I'll always remember him whenever I think of his work and hear the music of The Mothers of Invention. Love to you, Jimmy, and Godspeed you on your journey to your destiny.
Bye Jimmy, you'll be missed, you don't want us to be<br />sad, so I'll just listen to Lonesome Cowboy Burt &<br />smile in your memory.

RIP Jimmy. The downstairs neighbors had to put up with The Mothers last night and will have to deal with Geronimo Black tonight. Thanks for the wonderful music and great sense of humor!
