Howdy, Jimmy!<br /><br />Still looking at the [B]"Alien-Frog-Fly-Bird"[/B] on my desk from time to time that you created from soap stone in the 90s in Bad Boll.<br />Maybe i should upload the interview we made back then for the FRS (Free Radio Stuttgart)? Maybe archive.org would be a good place to share it with the world...well...some day, maybe...we'll see...<br /><br />Please say "Hi" to all the other musicians you tune up with at [B]"The Great Gig in the Sky"![/B] <br />And give Frank a smack, would you?! Or better two: One for making you only famous (not rich), and the other one for seeing his Doc too late...<br /><br />Missing you!!<br />Captain Ahab
Hi All<br /><br />Doubt anyone will read this but I thought id share my memory of meeting Jimmy.<br /><br />I was at the Stables, a local live venue in Milton Keynes UK when Jimmy was playing with the Muffin Men about 1999 I think.<br /><br />Afterwards I bought a CD from him and told him I worked at the local music shop and was a player myself. He gave me his business card and said if i ever had any work for him, to give him a call..!!<br /><br />I would have thought that it should have been me asking him for work.!<br />Great memory. Humble guy.
Hiya Jimmy! I hope you're checking this page from time to time up there in the Great White Heavens! I can't wait to see your sons again for the first time in 40 years. Geronimo is just as excited as I'm to be performing at the Grateful Garcia Gathering as "Geronimo Black". I know you're proud of your sons. I'm honored to have known you and them all these years... Catch ya later alligator!<br /><br />Luv & Hugs,<br />-Tim
You live forever! Thanks for the music and the memories.

Well then everyone who reads this needs to tell everyone they know to tell the Hall of Fame to put Mr. Jimmy Carl Black and all of the original Mothers of Invention in the Hall of Fame!! Muchas Gracias...
Hey Jimmy,<br />actually I had lost track some years ago, when starting a new family. The two of us met after one of your concerts with The Muffin Men in our region and exchanged some views on music. Today, trying to look up some chords and lyrics, I found out that we won't speak to each other for a while. You were a great musician and an even greater person. Keep on rocking heaven!<br />Frank
