I like the bit on freakout where jimmy rants on in a strange language, sort of mexican from outer space stuff. He also got together at one with that other spaced out acid casualty Arthur Brown!

I met him in York some years ago when he was playing with the Mick Pini Blues band. Knowing he was playing I took my (mono) copy of We're Only In It For the Money album with me and he signed it and had a chat. Instantly recognisable and drummed remarkably well that evening.

Damn. How old was he - 70? Doesn't seem that old. He should have had a much longer retirement, not to mention much more secure. (Zappa - great musician, lousy employer.)

My friends and I always thought that "I'm the Indian of the group" was some kind of immensely funny, ironic in-joke. (It must be admitted that we were not always in an unaltered state at these times.)

Imagine my surprise upon reading JCB's obit to find that he really WAS an Indian!
