Jimmy Carl Black Has Died

Fans of Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention have this greeting burned into their collective memories:

"Hi, boys and girls! I'm Jimmy Carl Black, and I'm the Indian of the group."

Jimmy Carl Black passed away last night. He sends a final farewell on his website, and tells us not to be sad. I'll try, but I'm sad anyway. I'll miss him dearly.
