Jim was a fellow musician that often played drums in my band. His warm smile and warm spirit always made things more enjoyable. He will be missed.
David Clark

I first met Jim in 1962 at Northern when he joined my glass 10G. Jim asked one day if I would like to hear he and a few of his friends who were starting up a band. That afternoon I became the singer for The Renegades and over the next few years we had some great and memorable times. ROCK ON OLD FRIEND
