In Memory of MoJo Jim

Post by Golfxzq »

This great Blues song is shared in memory of our good friend MoJo Jim who was tragically taken from this life on November 30 in a traffic accident. MoJo Jim was a lover of Blues and will be sadly missed but fondly remembered.

I feel the loss even though I never knew him personally. I have no other words. A sadness that he is gone.

That is such sad news indeed. Thank you for letting us know, and thank you Gerd for that link to remind us of his music.

What a terrible shock for all his family and friends - my deepest sympathies to them all.

RIP Mojo Jim.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, MoJo Jim will be terribly missed. Since Strummer, MoJo Jim, and I have not been very active in 12Bar in the past few years I thought some of you "old timers" that were around when MoJo first decided to take up guitar and joined this forum might like to hear how well Jim had progressed in his playing. I don't think he had posted anything to 12Bar recently but he still liked to check in occasionally to see what others were up to and follow some of the discussions. Jim was always very critical of his own playing, he was a perfectionist in whatever he did, but you can hear that he was becoming very accomplished in his Blues playing. This is all Jim, no help at all from Stummer or me. He was quite accomplished with his DAW and developed his own backing track.

You're absolutely right about "becoming very accomplished" - this is very apparent in the playing and the arrangement. Thank you for posting this recording.

Oh no! My wife Miriam and I met up with Jim and his wife at Antones on our visit to Austin last year and we enjoyed thier company very much. This is such sad news. He was a very nice guy and was progressing very well in his music.
