Bad news that Jimmy Carl Black [second from right, above] of Mothers of Invention died. He was 70. Will always remember him as "Jimmy Carl Black, the Indian of the group." Heard him on the radio this summer, and he seemed like a nice guy. Here's a link to the Zappa write up of a year ago. The Shroud of Zappa.
