Jimmy Carl Black, RIP

Drummer and vocalist Jimmy Carl Black, "the Indian of the group", who appeared on more Mothers of Invention records than you could shake a stick at, has passed away. Here's Jimmy drumming with The Mothers of Invention live on French TV 1968, live on BBC TV 1968, singing with The Muffin Men, 2002, and on one of his last gigs, singing Capt. Beefheart's Dropout Boogie in June 2008, in his duo with mad banjo wizard Eugene Chadbourne which they called The Jack and Jim Show. [more inside]

When I opened up my new copy of the Industry Standard today, I was happy to see a new last page column by CarlTM. It's been a couple months since CarlTM wrote a column, and it just wasn't the same without him. Micheal Parsons is a competent writer and all, but he's no CarlTM.
