He and the mothers got shafted by zapa. The band cowrote the songs and frank put his name on them. Then he fired them. The mothers had a 20+ year lawsuit going over this. In the meantime, Jimmy was down to being a housepainter. He and Arthur Brown had Black and Brown painting. I was living in Austin during this time and met Jimmy. He was a really nice, kind, man, that had a world of stories from those days. Often when we would be opening for big name bands, the headliners would line up to meet him! He struggled finacially through those years, had no health insurance, and it killed me to put 10-100 bucks in his hand after our many funky paying, long traveling gigs. We celebrated his 50th birthday playing a dive in san antonio. THere was interest in him in Italy, so off he went, that led to Germany. Right after zappa died, they settled with the grandmothers. Jimmy came out with like 30k. Then as soon as that wound up, the family sold the zappa cataloug to sonny for multi millions. He got a pretty raw deal and never lived much above subsistance. Still he remained kind and we would email back and forth over the years. Walter

busting parking meters for 45's
in my own kind of groove
truth, lying, trying
them was the days
asphalt in my blood
the hippies got tired of eating rice and beans
me and jimmy carl black
RIP Jimmy Carl Black
Boogie memories of jimmy carl black
wondering why
inside heroin addiction
