Jimmy is much more than a great musician and entertainer, Jimmy was & always will always be a friend of his fans. I was lucky enough not only to have corresponded many times by email over the years with Jimmy, to which I purchased a great part of his collection all signed J.C.B. at an unheard of price always followed with a freebee of some sort, but had the great pleasure of having had Jimmy come to my hotel room to meet my wife & myself once he heard that one of his fans had travelled from Canada to Albuquerque NM & was staying in the same hotel as he.

THANX for entertaining me the last 35 years and making me completely drunk, two days after F.Z. death at a Grandmothers gig in Hameln.<br /> R.I.P.
R.I.P. Jimmy. Best wishes to family and friends.
They should have kept the name "Soul Giants" because thats what they are. I saw The grandmothers at Alligator Ally in south Florida and shared peace pipe! Try busting him now! I was the first one to talk to Jim when he came offstage. I shook his hand and said "you guys were "my Beatles" he was a warm friendly man. He answered my email last year. I also saw them in Key west the following night on a coin toss! I hate to let you down Jim but I am sad that you are gone.
RIP Jimmy Carl Black. Thank you so much for coming to Ithaca last year and playing the show with Eugene Chadbourne. You guys were great, and it was real. Peace, bro.
Recently enjoyed your show here in DC. Thanks for all the music over the years. We'll miss you, Jimmy.
