Very sad news, from an email forwarded to friends of Eugene Chadourne (with thanks to EC and the Cool P):
Goodbye Good Friend, Jimmy Carl Black...
In loving memory of Jimmy Carl Black (born James Inkanish, Jr., February 1, 1938 – October 31, 2008).
Jimmy passed away peacefully Friday, October 31st 2008 at 11:00 o'clock pm.
A fitting time for Mr Spooky - he will never leave our hearts...
Jimmy says hi to everybody and he doesn't want anybody to be sad.
A benefit for Jimmy's family will be held on 9 November 2008 at the
Bridgehouse II in London.
Donations can also be sent directly to the family at:
JIMMY CARL BLACK
Our best wishes to them all,
Ben & Donna Raskin
House of Chadula
