My first memories of Jim are of him playing "Mr. Bojangles" on his guitar at his Broadmore home. I think he was around 14, so I was around 8, but even then I felt there was something different,special about him. As the years passed I see him when our folks got together and he still was living at home. After that it was chance meetings on holidays. Only the Ravioli brought us together by then. Though encounters were few, I can remember them so vividlly. I can remember when he was part of Urban Umbrella, The Hitchermen, and how the music morphed. I remember Jim telling me about what a snob Stan Ridgeway from Wall of Voodoo was (I think they warmed up for them) and how his band was really cool. The very day he passed, I was involved in a serious accident, so my opportunity to say goodbye was taken from me as well as my cousin. I miss him.
