Here is something I found over at Zappateers -

Lorraine Belcher Chamberlain, the chick that FZ was in LOVE with before anybody else and the one he got busted with for making " PORN" in Studio Z, we are talking HISTORY. I spoke to her, she had went and saw Jim "a"Motorhead" Sherwood, he is not doing well. I spoke with her today and this is what she said; send your best wishes, we need our Muthers. Original configuration rules, don't fool yourself. KING KONG!!!
Hi Sean...yes, I spent the afternoon with Motor yesterday. He is suffering from inoperable brain tumors. They tried to give him radiation and chemo, but it was not successful. He has only a few weeks now, and is bedridden,, unable to move hardly at all. His mind is clear, but he rarely speaks . We had a lovely time, though, under the circumstances. He sat up for a little while, and we had a light supper together. His wife Lynn is so wonderful and loving, he is lucky to have her. Years ago they rode on their motorcycle all the way to Point Reyes, where I had a booth in an art festival. They spent the whole day with me in the sun. Later on, I went to their wedding in Stockton. Bunk was there, along with a few others. It was really great! I'd never seen Jim so happy. Since then, we've never managed to see each other, but regularly kept in touch via email. I hadn't heard from him for a couple of months, but was so busy with my own life, taking care of Wilson, that I didn't realize it. Then Lynn called on Sunday with this heartbreaking news. I went right over there, of course. I have thought about him constantly since Lynn's call, and am so sad about this. He's such a sweet man....

Motorhead was always a cool son of a bitch on stage with the Mothers
He looks like a decent bloke too

Really sad, they're dropping like flies, first JCB and next him.

It's almost a miracle that Don Preston and Bunk Gardner (though Buzz died aged 71-72 last decade) have been able to push the 80 year age mark. Wishing them even more longevity.
