Euclid James "Motorhead" Sherwood, 1942-2011. Motorhead Sherwood from the Mothers of Invention passed away on Christmas Day. He was one of the original Mothers, appeared in 200 Motels and Uncle Meat, and was on all of the albums with the original Mothers line-up. (He even showed up again with Jimmy Carl Black, the Indian of the Group, on 1981's You Are What You Is.) An immensely talented saxophonist, Motorhead played on both Cruisin' With Ruben & The Jets AND the album For Real! by the real Ruben & The Jets.

You threw my best sharkskin suit out on the lawn, right on top of some dog waste and my best white shirts with the Mr. B collar laying all over the front lawn.

Where's my cuff links?

Motorhead, JCB, Don Van Vliet - emissaries from an older, weirder, more beautiful, and (no matter what anybody says) less refried / self-conscious America that we will never see again. RIP.

My name is James Sherwood (No relation.) I am alive. I also like Zappa and the M's of Invention.

That is all.

Trivia: When Gail Zappa had their first child, Frank was on the road, and he told her "Moon if it's a girl, Motorhead if it's a boy."

Thus Moon Unit Zappa.

Which tells me he thought a hell of a lot of Motorhead Sherwood.

I heard he'd been having trouble with pigs and ponies.
