My memory of Jimmy goes back to when I worked back in the kitchen in early 70's. (Holly was just a little girl then and Dori was a "General"!) When I was serving the line after the dance at Crystal Ball, not sure which was white meat and which was dark meat, but I really don't think anyone in the waiting line could tell either! I just gave them a piece of chicken...LOL! Jimmy was a good man and I'll never forget his laugh! Teresa Speelman-Graves-Brown - Columbus, Ohio

Jimmy had a huge influence on our life and our music, we grew up listening to him perform. So many people always refer to Jimmy as a great drummer (which he was) but to us he was first and foremost an entertainer. He was one of the true entertainers. Jimmy is someone we will never forget.
