I had the privilege of meeting Mr.Uriel in Nov.of '07 when The Funk Brothers were inducted into the Musicians' Hall Of Fame and Museum in Nashvillle,Tn. He was as lovable and humorous as he was in the movie. I was a guest of Mr.Eddie Willis' All of the Funk Brothers and their familes treated me like family. I will never forget how Mr.Uriel,Mr.Babbitt,and Mr.Willis accommodated me. I remember how Mr.Uriel's licks on "Shotgun' sounded so much like the recording that night. I'm honored to say that I had the privilege of meeting one of the "funkiest" drummers the music business has ever known!! May Allah(God)be pleased with Bro.Uriel's time with us.
April 20, 2009
I am saddened by the passing of Uriel Jones. I took up playing drums at the age of 8, and at that time, Cozy Cole was my inspiration. By the mid 60's, it was Motowns drummers that inspired me. And to this day, I still use the pickups that they used.

Rock and Roll Heaven added another member. RIP, Uriel.
April 15, 2009
You will be missed as on of the greatest drummers ever, but more importantly you humility has left a lasting impression also. An example I hope to follow. Thank you brother and may your family find comfort in Him.
April 08, 2009
My son is a drummer, and a lot of his styles come from listening to the Motown sound, including Mr. Jones's style. I just watched a show featuring Mr. Jones and other Motown musicans earlier this year. He was one of the greatest and will be sadly missed. My condolences to family and friends.

LOVE STACY
April 06, 2009
My family and I send our condolences to your family. Mr. Jones has influenced our lives like many others with his music. May the many fond memories of him give you comfort. God's Word can be a source of comfort also. Jesus said that "if you ask anything in my name, I will do it". (John 14:14) This includes asking for the strength to endure your pain. Our heartfelt prayers are for you.
April 03, 2009
My condolences to the family of Mr. Jones. Thank you for sharing your loved one with the rest of the world. The soundtrack to so many lives would have been different if not for Mr. Uriel Jones. God bless you.

I am a Motown Fan forever. I feel like I know Mr. Jones personally, just as I feel about all of the Motown family. I grew up on the music and still listen to it often.

To the family of Mr. Jones, You have my deepest sympathy and thank you for sharing him with the rest of the world.
He has left a mark nobody can erase from history.

I am "Ole School" (65yrs) and came up on the driving rhythms of the "Funk Brothers". Being a drummer myself, one have a tendency to pay particular attention to that instrument. I know that an untold number of drummers from "back-in-the-day" did their best to imitate the riffs, rolls, rimshots and "Pop-Eye" effects that Mr. Jones supplied to the music of "The Funk Brothers".We know that he is missed !
Not to worry. The Bible gives hope of a resurrection to faithful and obedient mankind, so there's a wonderful possibility that we will see Uriel again ! At the Bible book of John:5-28 it reads: Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29: and come out . . .

My Deepest Sympathy . . .
April 02, 2009
My sympathies to the family of Mr. Uriel Jones. I just loved the music of the "Funk Brothers". I especially loved the drums. Mr. Jones was the "best" drummer. Rest in peace, Mr. Jones. You can now play your drums in heaven behind the heavenly choir.
April 02, 2009
Mr. Uriel Jones,
My family and I welcomed your musical talent and appreciate the much joy and pleasure you brought to this world. You will be missed. Rest In Peace.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
March 30, 2009
One of the greatest joys of my life was seeing the joy in the faces of The Funk Brothers in "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown." The joy they brought to others was being returned to them. After 40 years of teaching music I always stop in my tracks when a Motown song comes on. Your life made all of ours better. Thank you!
March 30, 2009
I never new the Funk Brothers exsisted
until I saw the 2002 documentary which
is a excellent piece of work. Now, when
I listen to a old Motown song.. I pay closer attention to the music and say to myself the "Funk Brothers ". This is not only a loss to the Jones family but also a a loss the music industry. Jones family, your in my prayers...
Thanks, Ms Debbie Peake ... Columbus OH
March 30, 2009
Again the music has died. The Funk
Brothers were so talented. I listen to the Temptations just to hear their music in the background. Especially "Papa was a rolling stone". Their music was unbelievable and unsurpassed here on earth!
March 30, 2009
Uriel and the Funk Brothers brought and bring so much joy to all of us who are fans of music and the people that play it. I was so thrilled to watch the video of the Funk Brothers and am so thankful that they finally got the attention of all of us who loved their music, but did not know them.
March 30, 2009
I am a young one that has suffered from the lost of a loved one. May the comforting thought from the Bible book of Revelation, the 21st chapter, verse 4 be of comfort to the entire Jones family. It reads: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May Our Heavenly Father give you the strength you need to cope with your loss and to make it through these difficult days. I offer my sincere condolences to you all.
March 30, 2009
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
March 30, 2009
May the music he made , and the encouraging words found in the Bible at Rev. 21:3,4 bring comfort to the friends and family. God sees the pain and sorrow sickness and death causes and lets' us know, through the Bible, that he will stamp out that enemy.
March 30, 2009
Dearest Family, My thoughts are with you in your time of grief and sorrow, I turly as sorry for your loss. A wonderful person, so talented. Death is not in Gods purpose for ever, for he promises to wipe every tear from there eyes, nor mourning, nor outcry, nor pain, the former things will have passed away. Revelation 21:4. Take comfort. Sincerely

Those were the days and those were the men and women who taught us to work together for the music.
Rest well, Uriel, and now you keep the time with your brothers and sisters who have preceeded you.
March on heavenly choir.
March 28, 2009
Thanks for the Funky Beats.
March 28, 2009
Brother, you could lay down a groove. I have listened to the opening lick of "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" thousands of times. It was perfect, as was all of your work. From one drummer to another - rest in peace.
March 27, 2009
His beat goes on in many drummers who followed him.Probably one of the most influential drummers that was ever recorded.Mr. Jones, Please rest well, my friend.
March 27, 2009
I have in my posession all of Motowns music by every artist. I just love to listen to every musician play their instruments, especially the drum-mers. Every one in Hitsville were FULL of so much music that it's just really incredible, the arrangers, the writers, the singers, the band
leaders, EVERYONE!. Uriel will be surely missed, but he will live on through his music. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

When I am dead, my dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

By Christina Rossetti

To the family of Mr Uriel Jones,
I did not know him personally, but I knew his drum beats and of his music with the funk brothers and the music they helped to create for the world. Their movie, "Standing in the Shadows" is a favorite of mine and one that I never tire of watching over and over. I especially like the part where Uriel tells the story of Benny Benjamin and the elephants tying up taffic and he did not even drive. I am personally sadeden by his demise. But he has some fellow "funk brother" in the great beyond. To his family and those "funk brothers" left, may the love you felt for him and the love the creator has you sustain you in this your season of grief. Surely you will miss him, but his drum beats are another testimony of his existance on earth. May Peace be unto you!
March 27, 2009
You all were the greatest.Listen when any of Motown songs sung by the original artists with another band and then put on the real Funk Brothers band burned on all the new high tech stuff. Heaven for your ears. God bless his family and thank you for so many wonderful times. "Standing inthe Shadows was bittersweet for me,some of it was self-explanatory from the Dreamgirls script and from having musician friends and family,you knew how unsung and vastly underpaid,but such is life.
March 27, 2009
Whenever you hear the Motown sound, remember the drum is speaking to you, family.
May you hear the beat it will set you all souls on fire that spiritual fire from on high.
Listen, He is still drumming.

It is always difficult to lose a loved one. I think we can all find comfort in what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 "The hour is coming in which all those in the memomrial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life". God gives us the promise of seeing our loved ones again through means of the resurrection. The resurrection, based on the ransom sacrifice of Christ Jesus will bring a feeling of joy to get you through your time of grief.
March 27, 2009
You will forever be remembered by millions thru your music. You brought a lot of jou to my life through your music.I have never meet you, but thank you for the love and good times you shared with us all through your music.. To the family I say, hold each other close and tightly, Our father from above will see you through.May God bless and be with you. Our prayers will continue to be with you.
March 27, 2009
Please accept my deepest sympathies.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.

To The Family of The Late Uriel Jones


Lean On God
By: Charles G. Turner, Sr.

In life our love ones and friends sometimes suddenly pass away
For many reasons we don’t understand
Our hearts become heavy with sorrow
Just remember to pray to God and put it in his hands

As time goes on there are days when we feel sad
When that happens think of the good times you’ve had
Lift up your head and carry on
And ask God to make you strong

Lean on God through your stress and strain
And he will surely ease the hurt and pain
March 27, 2009
May The Jones Family find comfort in the knowledge that their beloved Uriel is in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. May they also find peace knowing that his music will be remembered as the very best that Motown has given to us. The wonderful music that he was a part of will live forever. Uriel Jones continues to live in our hearts, minds, ears, and in Heaven.
He has certainly lived a blessed life.
March 27, 2009
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring all of the family and friends comfort.
March 27, 2009
YOUR MUSIC TOOK ME THRU SOME TRYING TIMES IN MY LIFE. FROM MY EARLY YEARS THRU VIETNAM UP TO TODAY. YOUR MUSIC WAS LIFE. IT GAVE YOU HOPE. YOU WILL BE SADLY MISSED.TO THE FAMILY YOU HAVE OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND PRAYERS.
March 27, 2009
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Jones family,

My sincere condolences are sent to the family. Mr. Jones played a significant part, drummer, in crafting the Motown sound. His music is loved by generations and is timeless. God cares for us all and will remember those in the memorial tombs with a resurrection. His words in the scriptures at John 5:28 brings us comfort and gives us hope.

Deepest Sympathy to the Jones Family

'May god bless your every footsteps.'
March 26, 2009
From one Drummer to another: "We will miss you!! Glad to have known you! "
March 26, 2009
My condolensces go out to the family of Uriel Jones. I grew up to Motown and salute this talented man. His God-given talent was enjoyed by many and will last for generations.
March 26, 2009
My condolences to the family and friends of Uriel Jones. My family enjoyed "Standing in the Shadows of Motown". The history of the Funk Bros. was amazing. Last night it was great to see Motown night on American Idol, and the Funk Bros. mentioned and described as being the greatest musicians. We will always love the music. Mr. Jones will be missed.
March 26, 2009
After listening to the Motown Sound for many years, the concept of the "Musicians" did not dawn on me. Knowing that, my brother gave me the documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" as a birthday gift. That is by far the greatest documentaries of the Motown era. I came to love and appreciate the Funk Brothers. Mr. Jones, The Drummer Extraordinaire, will be missed. The Jones Family, and the Motown Family have my deepest sympathy.
March 26, 2009
You will be sorely missed. As a 1st. Soprano Psalmist in my church choir, I know that a singer isn't ANYTHING without strong, talented musicians working with them and the Funk Brothers of Motown were, quite simply, the best. God Bless you, Mr. Jones.
March 26, 2009
I've listened to your music for over 40 years, and love it as much now as ever. You, "pistol" , and Papa Zita, are the reasons I got into drumming. God bless you, and your family. R.I.P, sir.
March 26, 2009
I grew up in the 60s and Motown was the only music to listen to, in my opinion. I have viewed and enjoyed the documentary done on the Funk Brothers too many times to count, and I enjoy it EVERY time! The music you contributed will never, ever be the same again.
Rest in peace, Mr. Jones, and to your family, my deepest condolences!
March 26, 2009
Another Funk Brother gone but never forgotton. Thank you for the many memories of the Motown sound! I grew up, with my sisters on the Motown Sound. Never knowing who was standing in the shadows of the sound of Motown.
Standing in the Shadows of Motown is by far one of the greatest documentaries of music of all time.
Another drummer for the angels in Heaven.
March 26, 2009
Wow, the Funk Brothers have lost another great one. I was saddened to hear of Mr. Jones' passing. I hope he is resting in peace with the other brothers that have gone before him. Standing in the Shadows of Motown was a great documentary, and I'm glad the Funk Brothers finally have the recognition that they have long deserved!
March 26, 2009
REST IN PEACE...

He was great drummer that a few people outside of Motown knew anything about him.Iwas playing with different in the 60s and 70s,If you wanted to stay employed you had to know the Motown beat.It was R and B Funk beats all rapped together.
