Yes, I am JCB's oldest son. I recently mourned his 5 year passing. I miss my Dad...He was one of my heros, but he never knew that. When I was a musician (been on a 5 year sabbatical...) I became a singing drummer, as it was a dream I realized, and damn it, I was good at it!! I last saw my Dad alive in 2007 in Albuquerque, NM playing with Dr Eugene Chadbourne...I'll never forget it, because he was the ultimate road warrior, still playing for peanuts, but he still loved the road life... And Dr Chad...I respect you big time... I always wanted to play with him, along with my brothers in order to make those "Hollywood Dreams" come true for him....How sad, because all of his sons would have made him proud and financially comfortable... The "book" should have included some insights from JCB's sons...The "squirrel pie incident from Woodstock, the fart at Tjay Contrelli's smimming pool in Southern California that waved his swimming trunks...and so much more..." Moni, I wish you the best...I miss him as well... Respectfully, GRB
I saw the movie yesterday in Cologne. Watching Jimmy acting in his laid back and modest way it made me feel as if Jimmey was a relative or a long known friend. Too bad he isn't around anymore, I would have loved to drink a beer or two with him.
hi, I'm a drummer from Germany. actually a celebration evening musician, because I could never feed my family with music. I have like most always groups such as mothers of invention, art ensemble of chicago, john coltrane etc. yet the music is, after my family the highest and biggest thing I can think of. I am now almost 60 years old, but without without the drums which there would be no live for me. sorry about my english. rip udo
I started out playing drums in the 60s and grew up with the music of The Mothers then. Now I'm a "legend" myself heading towards the 70s of my life. Today I heard about the new film "Where's The Beer" coming up soon. I'll be there. And Jimmy will be there, too. And we all will have a beer then, of course...
Rest in Peace to an all-time great drummer, and a class act. Your memory lives on through the music you created, and the joy you gave to your listeners.
Hi Moni, hi Julian, I'm so proud of you ! Can't wait to have the book in my hand. Thank you very much - hope to see you soon. Robert
We miss you Jimmy.
Always in my memory
Jimmy became a force in my life the day a record club delivered We're Only In It For The Money to my mailbox....... We met in the early '80s and I weaseled my way into humping equipment for the Grandmothers, this led to a long friendship....... I miss him, this book should be fascinating! 2
