Default Jimmy Carl Black

Ya might say....Frank Zappa's first drummer..."In 1964, Black was playing in a band in Los Angeles called Soul Giants when they recruited Zappa. "He joined the band and three days later he took it over," Black once said. Zappa changed the band's name and reportedly boasted to the other members, "If you guys learn my music, I'll make you rich and famous." Black later quipped, "He took care of half of that promise, because I'm damn sure I didn't get rich." The world was never the same.

Indeed, the world is not the same. These cats were a big exclamation point in the history of music.

RIP.

p.s - Is there such a thing as a rich musician, Harry?

Not to stray too far off topic, but yes. Frank Z., for example, did pretty well, and left his family lookin' pretty good.

Default Re: Jimmy Carl Black

I don't know why I never posted in this:

I have a set of sticks signed by him, I met him a few months before he died. He knew my father and step father and played with both of them at one point or another. He was playing a show with a local guitarist, this guy could PLAY!

Talking with him really helped my playing, he was one of the most respectful people I've ever met!

Consaffo, Jimmy
