    I met Jimmy back in 2003. It turned out we had some mutual friends. I enjoyed hearing him play guitar. He and two friends and I sat on the couch singing old songs with Jimmy on guitar the last time I saw him about 5 yrs. ago. I will remember that and him. A shadow crossed my heart when I read that he passed. So sorry to his loved ones. He was truly one of a kind.

    I played with Jim in a band back in the mid 1960’s. We were all really just getting started in music. I played keyboards. Not even sure who all the other members were, but Jim is a guy you wouldn’t forget. He was already a polished guitarist back then. Even though I lost touch with him shortly after the band, I’m not surprised he continued playing music. Really sorry for your loss and sorry Jim’s and my paths never crossed again in all the years since. Rest in Peace Jimmy.
