Once upon a time, way back a long time ago when zappa.com consisted of nothing more elaborate than infrequently answered FAQs, Dances enquired about Jimmy Carl Black's medical problems. Well, after battling leukemia for seven years, he now has inoperable lung cancer. He leaves hospital in Germany on Monday (1 September) to undergo chemotherapy as an out patient. To help Jimmy pay his mounting medical bills, there's a special limited edition CD (Stick Man For Ever!) and some nifty apparel and other stuff available to buy here: http://www.cafepress.com/jimmycarlblack. Please do what you can to help a dear old Mother.

Are you sure you wouldn't rather be the first one on your block to have one of those genuine, accept no substitutes, Jimmy Carl Black thongs?
