Jimmy, you will be missed so much! Some of my fondest memories are of hanging wtih you and Big Sonny back in El Paso, being there when you guys recorded the In Heat album, sharing so many laughs and good times...Do you remember getting so frustrated with my son clomping around on the wood floors of the studio at Con Safo records? :-)My thoughts and prayers to your family. I know they must be celebrating your life while struggling with their loss.Love,Barb
I will miss you very much. You touched so many lives with your music and humor. I'm glad to have shared a brief period of time with you.
Jimmy Carl Black became an icon for me and my cousins way back in the late sixites, in part because we are "Indians." Jimmy's rock musician status made us feel we were not invisible in an otherwise "black and white" music scene. Being an "Indian" often times means being invisible to the modern world. Jimmy Carl Black kept true to his love for song and music and that makes him a true American and international artist. Que Viva el Jimmy, the Indian in the group!
Glad to have seen JCB swinging behind the drum kit, grinning like a boy, about a year ago in Boston with Eugene Chadbourne. Filled my heart.
Here's to a truly nice guy. It was a pleasure to work and be a friend with Jimmy. One hell of a musicianand a heck of a house painter.Sure am gonna miss ya!
I'll always remember you, Sonny, and the days when we bonded, loading hay in the upper valley in El Paso with our pals on Jimmy Ulmer's farm. God Bless You..
Hi. I am Jimmy's cousin. My grandfather's brother was Jimmy's father, on my grandfather's side of course. Inkanish is a Caddo word, so Jimmy was actually Caddo, not Cheyenne, as recorded. Nevertheless, our family offers condolences, and special ceremony blessings for the family and friends. Please, let me know where to send flowers. E-mail me if you can with information ASAP.
Jimmy is much more than a great musician and entertainer, Jimmy was & always will always be a friend of his fans. I was lucky enough not only to have corresponded many times by email over the years with Jimmy, to which I purchased a great part of his collection all signed J.C.B. at an unheard of price always followed with a freebee of some sort, but had the great pleasure of having had Jimmy come to my hotel room to meet my wife & myself once he heard that one of his fans had travelled from Canada to Albuquerque NM & was staying in the same hotel as he. The show was a real treat held in a small club of not much more than 100 people most of them family & friends. I will always cherish seeing The Jack & Jimmy Show with Mr. Eugene Chadbourne, Oct. 2007. Con Safo Jimmy, your Canadian fan Dan
jimmy thank you for your friendship, the drum lessons and the great time we had together in boll. i´am very proud that i met you and we become friends! i think of you every time when i will sit on the chair you gave me and play my drums. R.I.P. Jimmy and rock the heaven!!!!!your friend andré (leftie)
I just heard the news of Jimmy's death tonight and i am of course very sad to hear of his passing. My band Bigfoot were fortunate enough to support Jimmy a few years ago when he toured with The Muffin Men, and as well as playing a great set to a sold-out & adoring crowd, he found time to chat and crack jokes with everyone. He came across as a modest, warm, humble & funny man without airs or graces. As longtime fans, it was an honour to meet and play on the same bill as the great man.My warmest thoughts go out to his family.Kit.
