Heard the news today about Jimmy's passing. Wherever you are, thank you for all you did with the Mothers. My absolute favorite band of all time. I've gotten more joy from all those albums than from any drug or drink throughout my life and still do; half my Ipod is Mothers... I first heard the Mothers when I was just going into high school, summer 1966 and haven't been the same since, and for that I'm eternally grateful to Jimmy and Frank and all the Mothers. Adios and Peace forever Jim.
I encountered JCB, DP, Ruth and Ian in<br />Los Angeles when the original Grandmothers were doing a show at the Roxy. They'd come to see Air Pocket (Fowlers (all 5 of 'em), Chester, Ike) play at a jazz club.<br /><br />Being a profoundly affected Mothers/Zappa fan, I spoke with JCB and<br />most likely gushed the usual inane fanboy comments that he'd heard<br />forever.<br /><br />I clearly remember his compassion for, and understanding of, how this<br />music affected people.
Thanks for the memories, Jimmy! <br />I will always treasure those early Mothers albums.

Much love to you, your lovely wife. <br /><br />I enjoyed meeting you both in Bad Doberan in '02.<br /><br />Steve
Rest in peace. I grew up on those early Mother's records. I still think of some of those beats you played and how much of an influence that music had on me. Thanks for helping me mold into the free-thinker I later became.
RIP brother Jimmy. Thanks for keeping the time...
