RIP, Jimmy Carl Black (The Indian of the Group)

Ian Ballard

Silver Member

Jimmy passed away peacefully last night Saturday 11/01/08 at 11:00 o'clock pm. Jimmy says hi to everybody and he doesn't want anybody to be sad.

Jimmy was the original drummer in The Mothers of Invention.

Years ago, his group The Grandmothers came to The Grand Emporium in Kansas City. I went with my mom and we were BLOWN AWAY by his Zappa tribute band. I got to meet Jimmy and a couple other old Mothers members. He was a very nice guy and had a couple funny stories about Zappa as well.

He'll be missed.
