I have just heard that Jimmy Carl Black passed away at home in Germany.

He died 31 Oct 11pm local time.

This is very sad news. I suspect, having met him a few times that he was courageous in facing his leukemia, and he knew that he was loved by his fans.

JCB more than a drummer.

One of my favorite moments in all of FZ, MOI, etc. is when he attacks the rock critic in 200 Motels

He'll be missed!

Better late then sorry. God Bless :) Hearing the playing and music on 200 Motels makes me think that life is and always will be a temporary dance number
