Jimmy Carl Black 1938-2008
I was just surfing the net this morning, while listening to Jon Larsen's new record "The Jimmy Carl Black Story" (Zonic Entertainment 2008), and I suddenly realized that "the indian of the group" died 31 October. Sad news indeed.
Larsen's record is a double CD, where the first one is a quite surrealistic musical travel to Mars, while Jimmy Carl Black tells his own story on CD 2. The music is OK (makes me think a bit on Jean Luc Ponty in the 70s), and Jimmy Carl Black is a good story teller, and it's quite moving to listen to it these days of course, even if it's a good old rock and roll story!
See the previous album too.
