another boyhood idol is gone...


via don preston's facebook
James Euclid Sherwood made his transition last night. He was a good friend and went to High School with Zappa. After the Mothers disbanded he toured with Rubin And The Jets for a while. He had a brain tumor that couldn't be operated on. He died in his sleep with no pain.

From Candy Zappa on Facebook:

"This time of year always brings good things and sometimes very sad things. a very sad thing for us, we lost another member of the Zappa troup, Jim "Motorhead" Sherwood, one of Frank's longtime friend and early Mother's member, passed last night around 10pm, on Christmas. i remember when Jim and Frank would come over to our house in Montclair, CA, when i was about 11 and of course, Frank would have his coffee black, and when i asked Jim how he wanted his coffee, he said "Just pour sugar in it till it comes over the side" which today still makes me laugh to tell it. his wife Lynn, Jim's son and his wife were with Jim when he left. say some healing prayers for Lynn and Jim's family today, they need them. ♥"

Poor guy, tumours are just awful. It's good to hear that he went peacefully.
